The Permit Dispute Board supports the Flemish government’s decision not to grant permission to build six wind turbines in the forests of the SCK-CEN Nuclear Research Center in Mol. This says the Mall City Council, which itself gave negative advice on the permit.
Citizens’ cooperative and electricity producer Ecopower went to the Permit Dispute Board because they did not agree to the Flemish government’s refusal. He felt that the wind turbine project was not compatible with good spatial planning and that it did not prove an economical use of space.

The Mall City Council had also previously ruled that the project was “disproportionate” and totally unsuitable for the environment. And it seemed that “the realization of this project will cause great damage to this unique quiet green area.”
Ecopower wanted to see the decision by the Flemish government overturned, but the Permit Disputes Board stated that all actions were legally valid and that the rejection was justified on valid legal grounds.
