Villagers set for turbine battle  

Villagers from Prospect, Allerby, Gilcrux, Oughterside, Bullgill and Crosby Villa are preparing for a battle to keep windfarms out of their area.

Alan Osliff, of Prospect, who is co-ordinating the objections, said although the fight had not officially begun everyone concerned wanted to be prepared.

He said it is understood that three adjoining property owners, on land between Crosby Villa and Maryport are about to seek permission to build six 100 foot masts on their land.

Mr Osliff and a group of volunteers have put survey forms through about 1,000 letterboxes in each of the villages. The results will then be taken to Allerby and Oughterside parish council to seek its support.

Mr Osliff said Allerdale had already reached the minimum number of wind turbines it is required to have and he feels that other areas should now be taking their share.
