Garforth wind farm plan: Developers deny misleading people

Developers who hope to build a wind farm between Garforth and Micklefield have denied that they misled people in gathering support for the scheme.

In recent weeks representatives for Banks Developments have been on Garforth Main Street collecting signatures in favour of their plans for five wind turbines at Hook Moor between Micklefield and Garforth.

But opponents of the scheme claim that people were only led to believe they were signing up in favour of renewable energy and not the wind farm itself.

Carolyn Walker, spokeswoman for Hook Moor Wind Farm Action Group, claimed that it was only if people asked specifically that they were told the petiton was in favour of the wind farm planning application.
