Wind farms 'can damage rural tourism'  

Campaigners in Eden have welcomed a government-sponsored report that highlights the damage wind farms can do to tourism.

Members of COLT, Communities Opposing Lamonby Turbines, say the report backs their view.

Plans for turbines at Whinash were thrown out after a public inquiry. Further applications for turbines at Lamonby, Skelton and Shap are being opposed by campaigners.

The energy policy document, written on behalf of the Small Business Council, focuses on the impact on tourism and the rural economy of putting turbines up in rural areas.

The SBC advises trade and industry ministers on the effect of Government policy on small firms.

The report refers in part to a survey of 212 Cumbrian firms, in which 42 per cent thought that wind farm developments would detract from visitors’ experiences.

Opinions of some in the report would like to see more offshore wind farms.
