Campaigners share ideas on windfarms

Anti-windfarm campaigners in Northumberland have met a leading councillor from outside the area to share ideas to help their fight.

Martin Hill, leader of Lincolnshire County Council, has overseen a range of measures to halt applications for turbines on sites within his authority’s control.

They include a ban on new turbines within 2km of a home and lending support to protest groups.

Coun Hill was shown the largest windfarm in Northumberland at Lynemouth, before attending a meeting with campaigners and Conservative council candidates.

Deputy leader of Northumberland Conservatives Glen Sanderson said: “It was tremendously helpful to hear directly from a politician who has led radical action against the encroachment of wind turbines.

“Representatives from resident groups from across our county have shared ideas about how our council could do more to help local people stand up to well resourced developers.

“The Conservative council group has listened and will now reflect upon the most effective action we can take in defence of our very special landscape.

“The success of any action will rely upon support from the Lib Dem council administration, which sadly chose not to support our recent call for an urgent consultation into the spread of turbines.”
