Online petition will fight ‘irreversible’ turbine damage

Campaigners fighting planned wind turbines in Cornwall are calling on members of the public to sign an online petition which seeks to minimise where they can be sited.

Members of Tredinnick Turbine Action Group (TTAG) near Summercourt say if any more applications for the renewable energy resource are approved, it will be “devastating” and “irreversible” for Cornwall.

They are urging people to sign an online petition which asks Cornwall Council not to install wind turbines in areas such as in or near to an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty or within a certain distance of residential homes.

Speaking on behalf of TTAG, Peter Waller said the petition needs 5,000 signatures before a debate over the siting of wind turbines will be held.

“We have discovered that there are almost 400 such applications for wind turbines in Cornwall at the present time,” he said.

“There is a bill currently working its way through Parliament which recommends that a turbine more than 50 metres tall should be sited a minimum of 1,500 metres away from the nearest residences.

“Readers, please join us in saying enough is enough. Show your support by signing the online petition, and check Cornwall Council’s planning website.”
