Windfarm ruling gives fresh hope to campaigners  

Credit:  Halifax Courier, www.halifaxcourier.co.uk 5 June 2012 ~~

Wind farm protesters all over Yorkshire must be mightily encouraged by the success of people power and judicial sense in defeating wind farm plans in Norfolk.

I am heavily involved in helping local people who oppose wind turbine proposals which are ugly eyesores generating money for and developers but very little energy.
 I am horrified at the further desecration of the beautiful landscape and heritage of Yorkshire with ugly wind farms.

There will soon be no ‘Bronte country’, no “Hockney country’ which has attracted tourists for decades. When will this government concede these beastly useless monsters must go?
 Godfrey Bloom, UKIP MEP for Yorkshire & North Lincolnshire

Mrs Justice Lang has delivered a much needed legal smack in the eye to the firm planning to build four huge turbines in a beauty spot near the Norfolk Broads, ruling that lower carbon emissions do not take ‘primacy’ over the concerns of local people.

My constituency is also heavily under attack from wind farm developers who want to despoil our magnificent unique landscape. This High Court decision should set a precedent to planning officers, inspectors and courts that the feelings of local residents must be given due weight.

Yours faithfully

Godfrey Bloom, UKIP MEP for Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire
