Wind turbine full reason for refusal

The proposed turbine would result in the introduction of a prominent, tall and alien feature in this landscape, which would be viewed amongst other man made features detracting from public views of the locality by cumulatively increasing the perceived human influence on the landscape and on the setting of heritage assets, impacting upon the qualities and inherent values, including recreational use, of the Cornish landscape.  The public benefit derived from the wind turbine would not outweigh the harm to the landscape character. The proposal is therefore contrary to Para's 97, 109, 126, 131 and 132 of the National Planning Policy Framework 2012, Policies ENV1, ENV12 and TRU4 of the North Cornwall District Local Plan 1999, guidance within PPS5 Planning for the Historic Environment: Historic Environment Planning Practice Guide and Policies 1, 15, 23 and 24 of the emerging Cornwall Local Plan Strategic Policies 2010-2030 Pre-submission document March 2013.
