MP signs wind turbines plea  

Credit:  The Press, www.yorkpress.co.uk 1 February 2012 ~~

A York MP has added his name to a letter to Prime Minister David Cameron about the future of on-shore wind farms.

The letter, signed by politicians of all parties, has urged a reduction in the subsidies available for wind turbines and for planning rules to be changed so communities have a “fairer chance” of overturning applications.

It also highlights the “inefficient and intermittent energy production” of the turbines and questions Government policy which supports on-shore wind production.

York Outer MP Julian Sturdy said: “Nobody can deny the construction of a wind turbine can cause real distress for local residents and it is right that they have a realistic chance of defeating unwanted proposals.”
