(Looks like and approval to build, but an effective refusal to allow the builders on site - Joined up Govt? Application and appeal needs to be read, see links below )
Clean electricity station approved - In the GB (Green Belt) near Wakefield, permission was granted in 1996 for a small hydro electric power station at Kirkthorpe Weir on the river Calder. Consent has now been given for a 400KW station as a very special circumstance being the generation of clean energy. The majority will be below ground and the renewable energy source made a very special circumstance outweighing the inappropriateness in the GB. However the access roads were substandard and unfit for the large vehciles needed in construction. In the absence of a Section 106 obligation to control traffic approval was refused on highway safety grounds. DCS 43829225 April 2003
