Following the High Court quashing of the Inspector’s decision to allow the appeal by Broadview Energy against South Northants Council’s refusal of planning permission for the Spring Farm Ridge Windfarm, the Planning Inspectorate has published a programme for a further public inquiry. This will be held at an venue yet to be decided (probably the Council Offices at Towcester) commencing on 8th October. It is expected to last 12 days with a decision issued on or before 23rd December. For this new inquiry, the Helmdon Stuchbury and Greatworth Windfarm Action Group will be one of the main parties, together with South Northants Council and Broadview Energy. The case for the Action Group will be led by barrister Richard Honey with expert witnesses Alison Farmer (landscape architect), Michael Muston (planning consultant) and Robert Davis (acoustic engineer). Various third parties will also present evidence, including representatives of the Parish Councils of Greatworth, Helmdon and Sulgrave, Sulgrave Manor Trust, Helmdon Footpath Warden and affected residents. Written statements by these third parties have to be submitted to the Inspectorate by 23rd May. Anyone else wishing to appear at the inquiry should also submit written statements to the Inspectorate by this date.
