No windfarms in Scone  

Going through recent issues of The Advocate missed on a trip to Spain I was unpleasantly surprised to read of a proposed installation of wind farms on hills near Scone.

Parts of Spain we drove through are awash with wind farms. Blighted by them would be a better description.

These windfarms may be a triumph of industrial design, and in promotional pictures and videos they do have a certain individual elegance.

But, up close, they are gigantic, up to 150 metres high; as tall as a football field is long plus 50 per cent.

In groups or rows they completely overwhelm and visually annihilate the landscape for kilometres around.

Nobody who is financially or politically disinterested in wind farms but who lives close enough to see or hear them finds them attractive, quite the opposite.

Scone district does however have some of the most attractive country in NSW, heritage grade landscape I suggest.

We don’t need the visual pollution of heavily government (ie taxpayer) subsidised wind farms. Please put them in some else’s backyard.
