Campaigners protest at wind farm  

Residents in North Cornwall have staged a protest near Davidstow against proposals for a giant wind farm.

The four turbines commissioned by Ecotricity would stand in a field just off the A39 at Titch Barrow.

But 50 protesters said they were tired of their skyline being ruined by wind farms and they wanted the local authority to reject the plans.

Colin Caudry from Stop Turnbines in Cornwall or STINC said “We’re fed up seeing wind farms on our sky line.”

On its website the company confirms the turbines will generate enough green energy to power about 9,000 homes, which is twice the amount currently generated by the ten turbines at Delabole.

In a statement the company said: “Delabole Windfarm was built 17 years ago and it’s important for people to bear that in mind.”

It added: “Global warming has become an important issue in that time and using wind energy instead of conventional fossil fuels is the single biggest way in which we can fight climate change”.

But none of this has pleased the anti-wind farm campaigners who are urging North Cornwall District Council to reject the plans.
