AN APPEAL is to be lodged against Isle of Wight Council refusal to allow a wind farm on Shorwell’s Cheverton Down.
If successful, Cornwall Light and Power plans to erect three 125-metre wind turbines, which it says will generate enough electricity to power 4,700 homes.
The company’s application was initially jointly submitted with turbine manufacturer Vestas in January 2009 incorporating plans to use the site for research and development.
CLP development manager Steve Allen said: "We have taken time to consider all the comments made throughout the planning process and we remain convinced that the development at Cheverton Down would be beneficial to the Isle of Wight."
The Eco Island Supporters Group, which has campaigned for the Shorwell turbines voiced its support for CLP's decision to appeal.
The Wight Against Rural Turbines (ThWART) promised to renew its opposition.
