Now council should reject other wind farm proposals …
Thorney Parish council has urged planners to reject proposals for other wind farms near the village.
Following yesterday’s news that the French Drove wind frarm extension had been blocked by the Secretary of State, the parish council issued this statement:
“Thorney Parish Council is very pleased that the immense efforts made by local opposition groups, parishioners, City Councillors and Stewart Jackson, have resulted in the Secretary of State refusing permission for the installation of 4x100metre high wind turbines at French Farm, French Drove.
“As they are opposed for many of the same reasons and with equal determination by the local community and their representatives, we trust that the wind farm applications at Gores Farm and the adjacent Willow Hall Farm sites will be similarly rejected, when the City Council determines the outcome of these two applications.”
