Anti-wind farm protestors to fly blimp over site  

Anti-wind farm group BLOT – Belvoir Locals Oppose Turbines – will today fly a bright orange blimp over the site where developers plan to build 10 huge wind turbines, north of Grantham.

The balloon will be flown at 410ft – the height of the highest point of the turbines, which could be built at Thackson’s Well, near Long Bennington.

It will be visible from 20 miles and will be flown when members of Melton Borough Council, who are being consulted on the plans, visit the site on Friday.

BLOT member Pete Caswell, from Normanton, said: “The blimp is great idea to show people the height of the proposed turbines and the impact on the visual character to the area.

“But it will not show the planning committee the cumulative effect of having 10 turbines that height. It’s almost impossible to imagine the dominance this development will have on so many historic buildings in the area.”
