Councillors organise anti-wind farm meeting

Seafront residents in Bournemouth will get a look at alternative images of the proposed Navitus Bay offshore wind farm at a meeting on Saturday.

Arranged by councillors from the town’s seven coastal wards, the meeting, in the Royal Bath Hotel at 1.30pm, will feature images prepared by anti-wind farm campaigners Challenge Navitus, including a new perspective showing the turbines in line with the Isle of Wight.

Central ward councillor Mike Greene said: “It is surprising how many people still aren’t really aware of how this proposal might compromise the views which have attracted them to live in Bournemouth, as well as our many visitors.

“Navitus have had three exhibitions to display their own images of how it might look, but some have called into question their accuracy.

“With the public consultation deadline of April 5 approaching we want residents to have as clear a picture of what this might look like as possible.”

The meeting will hear from representatives of Challenge Navitus and the new Poole and Christchurch Bays Association, an umbrella group for coastal residents’ associations.

On Monday councillors agreed to register no comment on a licence application for a 120m-high meteorological mast sited some 18 miles offshore.

If approved by the Marine Management Organisation, the mast would be set up some time before the turbines to measure wind speeds.
