Windfarm rejected because of autistic boys

28th April 2010

Ridge Wind developers have lost their appeal to build a new windfarm site because of the impact it would have on two autistic twin boys living next door.

According to a report, a psychologist described the two boys as having a "fixation with spinning objects", and added that the "time they spend engaged in spinning and observing objects has to be limited in order to allow them to engage in other more meaningful activities". Marjorie Glasgow, managing director of developers, Ridge Wind, said: "While we are disappointed with the decision, we admire the Glathornes' care of their children."
