Council says no to wind turbines  

Credit:  Swindon Advertiser, www.swindonadvertiser.co.uk 13 October 2011 ~~

There was a standing ovation at the Wyvern Theatre tonight as hundreds of members of public performed miracles to prevent the erection of wind turbines at the Honda plant in South Marston.

At a special meeting of the planning committee held at the Wyvern Theatre councillors rejected Honda’s application to build three wind turbines with nine councillors voting against the plans.

Speaking after the decision chairman of the Ill Wind campaign group Des Fitzpatrick, 64, of South Marston, said: ”I am delighted with the result, it is tremendous.

“It speaks very well for all the people here and for the council.

“I just hope Honda, in light of this, will not appeal and will begin repairing the damage they have done to the community.”
