Lack of Joined-up-Thinking in UK also!!!
Mr. Norman Denning, who lives in the Horsham Council District area in the UK, was flabbergasted when he was told planning permission for a wind turbine at his home was unlikely, despite government encouragement and grants for such sustainable energy sources.
He had already spent £3000 on two turbines when he was told by the Horsham Council that he would not get planning permission for the turbines because the equipment might appear too prominent.
Gee - And I thought Ireland had the the world patent on the "lack of joined-up-thinking"
