Labour MP for Middlesbrough South and East Cleveland, Tom Blenkinsop, has today (11th August 2015) welcomed the decision by Banks Renewables to withdraw their planning application for a wind farm on Bank Field near Dunsdale.
Reacting to the news Tom said:
“I’m very pleased that Banks Renewables have made the decision to withdraw their application for a wind farm on Bank Field. It will come as a huge relief for local residents in Dunsdale Village, Mount Pleasant and north Guisborough who I have campaigned alongside in opposing this application.
“It was completely the wrong location for such a development and, I believe, only got so far due to the land being owned by an estate associated with a local aristocrat who allowed the development to even begin.
“Hopefully, this will be the end of the issue and local residents can now move on.”
