Wind farm gets go-ahead  

Councillors have approved the controversial wind farm planning application for Petsoe End.

The city planning committee was split 6-5 in favour of siting seven 406ft turbines on a hillside near the village of Emberton.

Some 200 supporters and opponents of the Your Energy scheme jammed into the public gallery at council chamber for the two-hour debate.

The meeting was briefly suspended after a council lawyer queried whether a committee member might have a prejudicial interest in the issue.

Objectors repeated claims that the turbines were the ‘wrong technology, in the wrong place at the wrong time’.

Committee member Cllr Jaime Tamignini-Barbosa said communities must begin a switch to using renewable energy otherwise there would be no landscape left to protect.

“We must accept that sometimes we must make sacrifices,” he said.
