This application was refused by Allerdale on 10th July 2015 for the following reason:

The proposed turbine, by virtue of its siting, scale and proximity to other turbine development would be a prominent and incongruous feature within the landscape, and would increase the proliferation of turbines in the area, resulting in a significantly harmful impact on the landscape and visual amenities of the locality.

Cumbria County Council have asked Allerdale to consider potential cumulative impacts of this proposal going on to say "proposals for single turbines can have significant impacts on the landscape and visual amenity when the cumulative effects are considered."
