Vermont lawmakers have voted down a rule that would have required large wind turbine projects to be built thousands of feet away from nearby homes.

Plans for a wind power project in a remote area of Vermont's Essex County are on hold.

Seneca Mountain Wind had applied for permits to erect wind measurement towers in Brighton, Newark and Ferdinand.

Some neighboring landowners appealed, saying Seneca failed to notify them about the plans as required by law.

WCAX-TV reports a Public Service Board hearing officer has sided with the landowners and placed the project on hold until Seneca makes proper notifications.
