Supporters are celebrating a victory after a planning inspector gave the go-ahead to a controversial 86.5m wind turbine at Bodham near the north Norfolk coast.
The bid by David Mack, part of the family-run firm Genetec, was rejected in August 2011 after a sometimes-bitter campaign by those for and against the turbine.
Genetec appealed the decision by North Norfolk District Council (NNDC), and - following a hearing on January 29 and 30 this year - planning inspector Alan Novitsky today announced he was backing the turbine.
He said: 'The proposal accords with the aims of the development plan and national policy overall.'
The appeal was between NNDC and the campaign group No To That Turbine (NOTT) and Mr Mack.
