Huge wind turbines put Bedfordshire residents in a spin  

Credit:  Written byRUPERT MARQUAND | 15/03/2013 | www.bedfordshire-news.co.uk ~~

Proposals for the construction of eight wind turbines that ‘would not look out of place in War of the Worlds’ have angered residents.

Landfill site operators, FCC, are reviewing feedback from consultations held earlier this year to build the turbines on a plot of land in Cranfield, only 600 metres from residential properties.

The 90-metre high structures will tower over the surrounding landscape while the wing span of each one will almost match that of a Boeing 747.

A local action group fear the noise and turbulence created will cause sleep deprivation.

Peter Gardner, 68, of Rectory Lane, Cranfield, said: “Lab rats die within two weeks of being sleep deprived and we have no intention of being lab rats.

“And if you were looking for a wind turbine site you would not choose the bottom of a valley, there are no benefits.”

An FCC spokesperson said: “If final proposals do not comply with the strict noise guidelines in place, the project could not proceed.”

The action group will meet on Thursday March 21 at the Methodist Church Hall, in High Street, Cranfield at 8pm.
