MP’s wind farm fears 

Credit:  Gazette & Herald, www.gazetteherald.co.uk 6 June 2012 ~~

A North Yorkshire MP has expressed her alarm about wind farms following an increasing amount of correspondence from worried local residents.

Anne McIntosh, MP for Thirsk, Malton and Filey, said: “I remain very clear that I stood at the election on a pledge to oppose wind farms, not least because of the overhead power lines which are a blight on the countryside.

“I will resist wind farm developments in my constituency as being unreliable, dependent on hidden Government subsidies and grossly inefficient in delivering a renewable mix of energy.

“In East Heslerton there is a proposed scheme for ten turbines which will then be decommissioned in 25 years.

“Many constituents have approached me regarding this issue as they feel this will cause destruction and disturbance to our rural way of life. Not only do these intrusive wind turbines spoil the countryside and damage the environment but also their noise levels are damaging to local residents.”
