THE application for two giant wind turbines near Denby Dale has been withdrawn.
But protesters are not celebrating.
The plans were withdrawn yesterday because a number of consultations had not been carried out in the permitted time.
However, the Examiner understands that proposals for the two 125m structures at Kitchenroyd could be resubmitted in around three months' time.
It means all 650 objections currently lodged would have to be sent to planners again.
Lynda Lawrence, a member of Residents Against Windfarms (RAW), the group campaigning against the turbines, said: "RAW would like to thank all of the people who have supported us and objected and we would ask them to do so again should a similar proposal be made in the future.
"We will continue to monitor the situation closely.
"We welcome the withdrawal of the proposal if it's a permanent withdrawal and not simply a strategy to delay the issue.
"It seems to be quite usual for applicants to withdraw their application and wait a while in the hope that objections will drop."
She said she thought people could see for themselves that the location is unsuitable because it's too close to homes.
She also said the site was dangerous because mining had taken place there in the past.
Alpha Wind Energy is behind the twin turbine bid, which started back in May 2004.
The project's architect, Tony Mallalieu, said the company had been asked to consult on noise, flicker, shadow and interference with television and radio.
He said: "It has not proved possible to provide this information by the date required by the council as consultants have to be briefed and given time to prepare the very technical information required.
"The applicant has, therefore, no option but to withdraw the present planning application and after preparing the necessary information resubmit the planning application."
