THE planning application hearing to install three wind turbines at the Honda plant has been deferred.

Members of the planning committee took the decision after hundreds of residents turned out in protest of the application.

There were too many to fit inside the council chamber, in the Civic Offices, without breaching fire safety regulations so the decision was made to postpone.

The hearing is due to be rearranged at a larger venue.
