South Norfolk Officer's decision re Turbines
Helen Mellors's officer recommendation to the Committee published 21/01/2014 is:
Would have approved, with conditions, subject to Ministry of Defence and National Grid objections being addressed and subject to receiving a suitably amended plan and seeking clarification on the siting// of Turbine 4 to nearest bat feature (Little Wood) and subject to additional information being submitted to demonstrate a noise level of 35 dBA can be achieved at all properties.
Obviously, this recommendation needs to read in context with the whole report, assessment and conclusions.
