Village rallies turbine opposition  

Villagers in Tallentire and Dearham are asking people to object to plans for a windfarm in the area.

Novera Energy has applied to Allerdale council to build five 105 metre turbines at Fleeter Wood, on land next to West House.

But Tallentire Area Action Group chairwoman, Margaret O’Hare, said she will tell everyone in the area to send a letter to the council in objection.

Mrs O’Hare, of Tallentire, said: “It would be clearly visible from the Lake District National Park, the Solway Coast and it will dominate Cockermouth, which is a gem town.

“We are trying to draw people towards the west coast and into areas like Cockermouth. Frankly, would people think a windfarm was acceptable in Keswick?

“ The vast majority of residents in the greater Cockermouth do not fully appreciate the true impact this development will have on their immediate environment.”

Allerdale council will decide on whether to approve the application early in 2008.
