Anti-turbine campaigners welcome inspector’s decision

Anti-wind turbine campaigners ThWART have welcomed a decision to reject plans for the Isle of Wight’s first wind farm.

In a statement, ThWART spokesman Stuart Hutchinson, said: “We are delighted that the Inspector has supported Isle of Wight Council’s decision in 2009 to refuse planning permission for this hugely damaging project.

“As we said when the planning application was refused, the size of the turbines would blight the historic landscape for miles around, putting our valuable tourist industry at substantial risk. They would have threatened the enjoyment of walkers and horse riders on trails and pathways alongside the site and far beyond.”

“We may have more to say after we have studied the Inspector’s written findings in more detail. Meanwhile, we are already focusing our opposition to a similar threat to the Island’s tourist industry, the plan by developer Infinergy to erect five industrial sized wind turbines on farm land at Wellow, immediately next to an AONB in Tennyson Country.

“Again, it will be the landscape and local amenity that will be adversely affected – another wrong project in the wrong place,” Mr Hutchinson added.
