People who like to go walking
in the Peak District may be pleased to learn that plans for a large wind turbine have been turned down by the national park authority.
The plan was for it to be installed at a dairy farm near Ashbourne to power the facility, but its 48.4 metre (159 ft) height - just three metres less than that of Nelson's Column - was deemed too tall for the national park.
One of the considerations was the prominence the installation would have from a nearby public right of way.
Chair of the panning committee John Herbert stated that the authority supports green energy and wants to keep its farms "viable", but added: "Not all such schemes are suitable for a protected landscape like ours."
The decision to turn down the windfarm is not the only planning proposal rejected by the Peak Park planners in recent days.
It has also blocked a proposed housing development on the site of a former cheese factory at Hartington.
