NORTH Devon District Councillors have overwhelmingly rejected the plan to built a wind farm at Fullabrook Down.

They agreed with their officers and decided to indicate refusal to the Government which will have the final say.

The motion was proposed by Cllr Rodney Cann, who said the application was a threat to the character and appearance of North Devon.

Exhibitions for an against the proposed Batsworthy Cross wind farm near South Molton were held last week.

Npower spokesman Patrick Spink said of 4,700 feedback cards sent to residents, 320 had been returned, 57 per cent in favour of his firm's scheme and 36 per cent against.
