Molesworth wind farm campaigners present case to HDC

Campaigners against a proposed six-turbine wind farm at Molesworth delivered their objection document to Huntingdonshire District Council on Friday (August 10).

RWE Npower Renewables has applied for planning consent to put up six three-bladed turbines up to 126 metres (416 feet) in height to blade tip, with associated infrastructure, on 245 hectares of land south-west of RAF Molesworth, off Warren Lane, Bythorn.

The Stop Molesworth Wind Farm Action Group, which was formed after the idea originally surfaced in 2010, believes the proposal contravenes HDC’s own policy on wind turbines in the northern wolds.

In a recent survey covering 10 villages surrounding the site, 93.4 per cent were against the application, said spokesman Lorna Lane-Ley, who pictured along with Vicky Wood, Ken Adamson, Sheila Adamson and Anna Lightfoot, presented the campaigners’ response to HDC.

RWE Npower Renewables says the six turbines would generate enough electricity to power 8,700 homes and adds that there would be protection for great crested newts and badgers and that the development will benefit other wildlife including birds, small mammals such as bats, invertebrates and amphibians.
