Banks Renewables withdraws Killington wind farm plan

Proposals for a three-turbine wind farm in Cumbria have been withdrawn ahead of a planned public inquiry.

Plans for the 430ft (132m) turbines at Killington, near Kendal, were approved by South Lakeland District Council earlier this year.

But the application was called in by the government and a public inquiry was scheduled for September.

Developers Banks Renewables said the likely costs of the inquiry meant it had no choice but to scrap the plans.
