Eric Pickles' decision paper is on our website. Click here to read it. Please allow time for it to upload as it is a lengthy document.
Eric Pickles' report has been published this morning. Although the Inspector would have allowed TCI's appeal, Eric Pickles, Secretary of State, has refused it and planning permission has not been granted.
After 8 years, 2 Public Inquiries plus a great deal of work by very many people, this is the result we wanted.
More detail to follow and an email will go out later to our loyal Supporters.
In the meantime - well done everyone!
After 13 years and four Inquiries, Eric Pickles has rejected Ecotricity's application for turbines near Shipdahm. We are delighted for Shipdham residents, but we also fully understand the turmoil and uncertainty they have had to go through again and again with each new battle. And even now, it is possible that Ecotricity will continue the madness and instigate a legal challenge to the decision.
Let's hope we will soon hear that Eric Pickles has come to a similar conclusion for Hempnall and SHOWT by rejecting TCI's appeal.
We had expected Eric Pickles' decision by 17 September. However, his office have written to say that the matter is delayed and that they are unable to give us a new deadline. As soon as we received either the decision itself, or more information, we will post the news here and email Supporters.
