East Lindsey District council stance on wind turbines after John Hayes Coalition wind farm row

Reported comments by Lincolnshire MP and Energy Minister John Hayes on wind farms last week triggered a response from East Lindsey District Council.

ELDC’s Portfolio Holder for Economic Regeneration, Coun Craig Leyland, said: “East Lindsey District Council has always taken a robust stance with any on-shore wind proposals that would impact harmfully upon the character and appearance of our valued landscape and our residents.

“That stance has been strongly put to and noted by Government advisors and Planning Inspectors at the numerous appeals we’ve fought.

“John Hayes’ comments appear to signal a change in direction from the Government which we welcome.

“This council is spending hundreds of thousands of pounds of taxpayer’s money each year to defend its planning decisions against energy giants and what needs to happen now is that central government policies are changed to reflect this new direction.”

Prime Minister David Cameron said in the House of Commons there has been no change towards renewable energy.
