Exmoor wind plan hits streets  

The power firm behind a plan to build nine 360ft-high turbines on the fringes of Exmoor has begun to outline its proposals to people living in the area.

The firm npower renewables submitted an application to build the turbines at Batsworthy Cross last week and over the coming week will be delivering newsletters to 4,500 homes in the area to explain the details.

The four-page document contains a photomontage of how the proposals could look.

Simon Holt, project manager for the Batsworthy Cross windfarm, said that a vocal minority had drowned out the “silent majority” of people who were in favour of wind power. He said that the proposed turbines could power the equivalent of one in five North Devon homes. He said: “Throughout the consultation process we have aimed to keep local people as informed of the facts about the wind farm proposed for Batsworthy Cross as possible.

” We now hope that people realise that they really can make a difference in the fight against climate change by actively supporting renewable energy schemes like this one.”

The Two Moors Campaign group, which was formed to oppose the Batsworthy Cross plan, fears the development will do little to reduce carbon emissions, but at the cost of spoiling the landscape of an area visible from both Exmoor and Dartmoor.
