Vital time to object to plans for energy farms  

Credit:  9 January 2013 | www.spaldingtoday.co.uk ~~

Residents are being urged to write official letters of objection to plans for renewable energy farms in the Crowland area.

They have until February 1 to lodge an objections to Peterborough City Council’s plans for 900 acres of solar and wind farms across prime farmland.

As reported in the Spalding Guardian and Lincolnshire Free Press, tenant farmers stand to lose their livelihoods if the plans are passed.

Tenant farmers, residents and supporters packed Newborough Village Hall on Tuesday night to take their protest a step further.

They were offered advice on what matters to highlight in letters, including the council’s alleged failure to consult efficiently, threat to wildlife, visual impact, flooding, impact on the community and loss of prime food producing land.

Jackie Dugdale, vice-chairman of Newborough Landscape Protection Group, said: “We were thrilled with the turnout – there were at least 20 new faces among the crowd.

“Now we need people to write letters to let the council know we do not want this.”

Supporters can also sign a petition at the fruit and vegetable shop run by tenant farmers Graham and Rebecca Cave in Peterborough Road, Crowland.

Mrs Cave said: “We stand to lose our farm and, if the plan goes ahead, we’ll have to look at it from our shop.

“The thing is in ten years time wind and solar farms will be out of date.”
