Criticism as Balkholme wind turbine building plans go ahead  

Credit:  Hull Daily Mail, www.thisishullandeastriding.co.uk 31 December 2011 ~~

GOOLE: Plans to start work building a wind form near Balkholme have sparked upset.

The ten turbines at Sixpenny Wood will be 410ft tall and generate enough electricity to power 120,000 homes a year.

REpower will start building the wind-farm next summer to be completed by the end of 2012.

Despite a long-running campaign by local residents and councillors, Sixpenny Wood was given permission on appeal after being refused by East Riding Council. It will affect the views of 90 properties.

East Riding Councillor and Gilberdyke resident Paul Robinson said: “It is a sad day for local democracy.

“The communities of Laxton, Kilpin and Eastrington, as well as Balkholme, will be affected by the turbines which will be a totally overwhelming feature of the landscape.

“Neighbouring parish councils as well as local residents were against the development, as well as MP David Davis and MEP Godfrey Bloom but there was a certain inevitability about it all.”
