Q: Does anyone have experience of dealing with a planning application for homes so close to an approved wind farm that, had the dwellings already been in place, the turbines would probably have been refused because of the likely impacts of noise or shadow flicker? If so, what happened on appeal? Could a landowner whose land has been so detrimentally affected that it is unsuitable for residential development take out a civil case against the wind turbine operator or landowner for causing such blight?
