FELDON RESIDENTS AGAINST WIND TURBINES
Despite overwhelming local opposition and the unanimous rejection by Stratford District Councillors of 4 Wind Turbines next to Burton Dassett Hills, Broadview Energy Appealed and the Public Enquiry took place in September 2013.
This appeal has been “called in” by the Secretary of State, and the decision will now be made in MID APRIL 2014
We will keep you up to date and inform you of his decision as soon as possible.
Frawt would like to thank all those members of the local community that supported us the last 4.5 years.
Let’s hope the Secretary of State realises that the vast majority of the local community rejects this application, and lets hope he does the same!
Who Are We?
We are a group of concerned residents of the Vale of Feldon (South Warwickshire) living in the immediate vicinity of the proposed wind turbine near Knightcote. Please support us – we need your help to save our beautiful countryside.
WE ARE NOT ALONE. The Vale of Feldon is under attack by greedy developers and there is a real possibility of 40 turbines within view of the Burton Dassett Country Park. In addition to Knightcote, the other three sites are: Wormleighton, Shuckburgh and Shotteswell. We need your help
We live in the villages of Knightcote, Bishops Itchington, Harbury, Northend, Gaydon, Temple Herdewyke and Fenny Compton (click here for details of Feldon Area).
What is the threat?
A planning application for 4 X 400ft turbines has been made
In 2009, the London based developer put in a planning application for an Anemometer (Met) Mast which was twice rejected by Stratford District Council and all the Parish Councils. Despite this clearly expressed by our democratically elected representatives, the developer twice appealed to the Secretary of State who, with reservations, finally allowed the application.
BURTON DASSETT COUNTRY PARK is facing a massive impact on the quality of its unrivalled views
This video (without sound) shows the potential view from the crossroads at Knightcote
You can see the mast in the picture below (with a simulation of what just 3 of these turbines will look like). We all know how big the mast looks when we drive past it every day and yet it will be dwarfed by these huge turbines.
