to support clean energy in Wiltshire
The Planning Inspector has found that all references to separation distances between wind turbines and homes should be deleted from Policy 42. This is great news.
Wiltshire Council was asked to consult again on the inspector's recommendations. This consultation concluded on Tuesday 27th May 2014. We will update you when we receive further information.
