Action group campaigners say three into one just won't go 

Campaigners in north Northumberland have hit out at Berwick borough planners, who want to decide up to three controversial wind farm applications at the same meeting.

Members of Moorsyde Action Group say it “beggars belief” that Berwick Borough Council would consider determining Moorsyde and Barmoor, and possibly even Wandylaw, at its planning committee on May 29. The three developments – all by different companies – each have their own complex histories and planning issues.

Together, they total 29 turbines.

A MAG spokesman last night said there were deep concerns, not least because this will be the first scheduled meeting for the new planning committee after the local elections, and will take place shortly after the committee’s first training session.

“It beggars belief that the council are proposing to hear two, possibly three, hugely complex and controversial planning applications at an ordinary planning meeting, with a new committee.”

The spokesman added: “It is also entirely illogical to consider Barmoor, Moorsyde and Wandylaw together but not Toft Hill, a proposal immediately next door to Moorsyde, which is also in the planning system.”

No-one was available for comment at Berwick Borough Council.
