Fears over windfarm plan grow  

A further public meeting to discuss proposals for a windfarm between Kelmarsh and Naseby has been organised in Arthingworth

The meeting being held in the village hall from 7.30pm next Thursday aims to allow residents of Arthingworth, Harrington and Great Oxendon to gain information about the plan.

A speaker from a Cambridgeshire windfarm protest group, Mike Barnard, will be attending and the group is hoping Daventry District Council leader Chris Millar will also speak.

It has been organised by Arthingworth residents and the Stop Kelmarsh Windfarm Committee in response to proposals made by power company Eon and the Kelmarsh Hall Estate to investigate the possibility of installing up to eight turbines
on grounds south of the A14.

Action group members fear the proposals would have a devastating effect on the environment, spoiling views across the Naseby battle site, and disturbing wildlife.

They have also raised concerns over the potential danger to motorists using the A14, who they fear might be distracted by strobing light from the turbines when the sun is low in the sky.

The committee has already held meetings in Naseby, Maidwell and Clipston which have attracted more than 300 people in total.

Trustees from the Kelmarsh Hall Estate have said the scheme is being investigated as a way of ensuring the ‘financial stability’ of the trust, allowing it to carry out essential repairs to Kelmarsh Hall and the surrounding estate, adding that there wil be full public consultation at the earliest point.
