Residents in wind farm protest

Residents of Aston and Dutton are continuing to fight proposals to build a wind farm in Weaver Valley.

Stop Aston Windfarm was formed three years ago to fight the proposed development of three giant turbines in Aston.

There will now be a public enquiry on April 1, after Vale Royal Council rejected planning permission in June, 2007.

SAW treasurer Sue Beecroft said: “We are not opposed to alternative energy, but we are opposed to the building of turbines on Green Belt areas.

“Many people don’t realise that the proposed turbines are the size of Fiddlers Ferry power station in Widnes.”
