LINCOLNSHIRE WINDFARM REJECTED TO HELP AUTISTIC BOYS
A North Lincolnshire windfarm plan has been rejected because of the “serious effect” it would have on eight-year-old autistic twin boys living nearby.
Anita and Trevor Glathorne, whose Burton upon Stather home is already overlooked by one windfarm, said the rotating blades affected their sons.
The planning inspectorate dismissed the appeal solely because of the impact the farm would have on Lewis and Ross.
Developer Ridge Wind said it was disappointed with the decision.
‘Spinning objects fixation’
The developers appealed to the planning inspectorate after North Lincolnshire Council rejected the application for the Grange windfarm last year.
It would have overlooked the front of the Glathornes’ house, so they campaigned to have the application refused because they said it would harm their sons who both have autistic spectrum disorder.
