Not so local
1:12pm Friday 4th May 2012 in Letters
Sir, – I refer to the proposed wind farm at Bradbury and Mordon Carrs (The Isles) in southern County Durham.
The County Durham Association of Local Councils and 21 parish councils unanimously oppose any wind farm at The Isles, especially a giant wind farm on a protected landscape.
The Localism Bill, as we understand it, is to place great weight on the views of the communities involved and will take account of public opinion. Since there is no doubt about the wishes of those involved, we fail to understand why the company behind the plan – Eon Climate & Renewables – would wish to pursue this proposal in the face of united and total opposition to the destruction of our countryside and its wildlife.
We would like to seek a wider audience for our complaint but the total inequality of the system means we will not receive any subsidies which would encourage us (if we had the funds) to take full page advertisements in national and local newspapers.
JOE HALL On behalf of The Isles Communities Turbine Action Group, County Durham.
