TORRIDGE District Council could make a U-turn on its initial decision to make no objection to the plans for one of the world's biggest offshore wind farms.
At a special meeting of the district council's plans committee on Tuesday, September 10, it was decided not to object to the Atlantic Array.
The decision was swayed by one vote.
But now one of the councillors on the plans committee, who voted against it, is hoping to counter the committee's decision by encouraging the whole council to object to the wind farm.
Councillor Chris Leather has put a motion of notice forward for the district council's full council meeting on Monday, for councillors not to support the wind farm.
The Atlantic Array wind farm would consist of up to 240 turbines reaching 220 metres in height.
It is proposed to be built 16km off the North Devon coast in the Bristol Channel.
Mr Leather was left outraged by the outcome of last week's meeting and hoped his motion would give councillors an opportunity to speak about it further.
He said: "I decided to make the motion as soon as the meeting had finished.
"It was a complete farce. I proposed we object to the wind farm and Councillor Margaret Brown seconded that but it was never voted on.
"I questioned the solicitor Ken Miles on this but he said we voted on Phil Collins' motion, which was an amendment of mine, but it wasn't.
"It was a very strange plans committee. North Devon's decision the following day to object to it made us look stupid.
"This will give us the opportunity to have a full and frank discussion on the Array and the wider issues, not just planning matters.
"We have been promised nothing from developers RWE and I think we should be asking for £1 million a year if it goes ahead.
"The public have a right to know what the councillors think as it is the biggest issue to come to Torridge."
The Planning Inspectorate, who will be deciding on the wind farm application, confirmed equal weight would be given to any factual evidence submitted by local authorities, whether it is from a plans committee or full council.
