Villages oppose meteorological mast  

Residents and councillors have voted to officially object to a plan for a meteorological mast near their Northamptonshire homes, for fear it will pave the way for a wind farm.

Residents from Woodford and surrounding villages met on Friday to discuss the plan for the 60m mast, which is proposed by Nuon Renewables.

The company wants the mast to test the potential for a wind farm in Charwelton Road, between Woodford Halse and Preston Capes.

Edward Giles, spokesman for Woodford Wind Farm Action Group, said 149 people at the meeting voted to object to the plan, one person was in favour and one abstained.

He said: “One of the biggest impacts of a wind farm would be the housing market.”

Bernadette Rogers, chair of Woodford Halse Parish Council, said there were 10 areas of concern for the authority which included the energy efficiency of wind farms, the affect on house prices, noise pollution and the effect on radio signals.
