Anti turbine campaigners step up their pressure at Syderstone, near Fakenham

Villagers battling with an energy giant over a wind farm plan yesterday held a sponsored walk to boost a fighting fund.

Against Turbines at Chiplow (ATAC) is a group of people in Syderstone and surrounding communities near Fakenham who are opposing plans by E.On for five 100m turbines.

They fear their lives will be blighted if the scheme gets the go-ahead and believe the site too close to homes.

However, E.On insists it would help the region meet the government’s renewable energy targets.

West Norfolk councillors refused permission but the energy company appealed and a public inquiry is due to be held early next year.

The hearing is set to last for about two weeks and will also consider plans for another wind farm a few miles away at Jack’s Lane.

As part of the campaign, about 20 people yesterday held a sponsored walk from Syderstone Common around the 4.5 mile boundary of the Chiplow site.
