According to the preliminary relief judge, Platform Storm is not the right party to bring this before the court.
The lawyers of the initiators of the Drentse Monden Oostermoer wind farm argued that Platform Storm is a foundation without clear assets and of which it is not clear who or what they represent in the battle for the Drenthe wind farm. The court agrees with that lecture and for that reason Platform Storm has been declared inadmissible.
Platform Storm and its lawyer Peter de Lange want to stop the construction of the wind farm because no environmental impact assessment was started when the building permit for the park was issued.
They based their claim on a judgment of the European Court of Justice, which ruled that noise effects at a number of wind farms in Flanders have not been mapped. There a line was drawn through the issued permit.
Platform Storm and De Lange were therefore hopeful that the construction of the Drentse Monden Oostermoer wind farm will also be halted. But the court in Assen does not think Platform Storm is the right party to make that point clear to the judge.
Wind farm initiators are relieved
The initiators of the Drentse Monden Oostermoer wind farm are happy with the verdict. “We had confidence in our defense and have been proved right on these points,” said a spokesman.
‘We were already building and are happy that construction can now continue as usual. Construction will not be delayed either and we expect the wind farm to be ready around the summer of 2021. ‘
Platform Storm is considering
Lawyer Peter de Lange, who brought the case on behalf of Platform Storm, is disappointed in the ruling. ‘I think that the judge assesses this standard very strictly. As a result, we did not get to the substantive treatment. We will deliberate, but I will advise my client to appeal. ‘
– ‘Ban on the construction of the Drentse Monden Wind Farm leads to bankruptcy of initiators’
