Have your say on Elvington mast plans  

Villagers are being urged to pen their objections to City of York Council to show “the strength of feeling” against a proposed 50-metre mast for Elvington.

Parish councillors have lodged their opposition to Yorkshire Water’s bid to install a wind monitoring mast at its water treatment plant at Elvington. And they are now appealing to residents to follow suit.

If approved, the mast will monitor the speed, direction and quantity of wind to determine whether a wind turbine would be viable for the area. A separate planning application would have to be submitted for a turbine.

Council chairman Ian Bailey said: “We hope very much that individual residents will write individual letters of objection to show the strength of feeling.

“While everyone is supportive of environmental issues and natural generation of energy, we consider it completely inappropriate to have masts close to residential communities.”

Councillors’ key objections include the “excessive visual impact on the whole village”, and the proposed mast’s proximity to residents.
