Wind turbines to be explained to Eythorne residents  

Credit:  April 02, 2013 | www.thisiskent.co.uk ~~

A series of public exhibitions will be held to explain the impact of two wind turbines to the Eythorne area.

The nearby villages are set to become a new hub of renewable energy, as reported by the Express last month, with plans on the way for two wind turbines and a solar array the size of 14 football pitches.

Scoping reports are being carried out for proposals for two wind turbines, in Barville Road, Eythorne and Thornton Lane, Eastry, by renewable energy developers RES UK & Ireland Ltd.

They will hold public exhibitions from 1pm until 7.30pm between April 24 and 26. Wednesday’s will be at Eastry village hall, Thursday’s at Tilmanstone village hall, and Friday’s at Eythorne Resource Centre.

Some local residents are already opposed to the turbines, which have a maximum tip height of more than 100 metres.

“I am against the installation of wind turbines in any inland location for environmental reasons – they are detrimental,” said Pike Road resident David Williams.

“I particularly deplore the financial incentives given by government to landowners for their installation, which serves to skew the economic argument and justification.”

But Kent Green Party supports the plans, arguing the area should be paving the way for a renewable energy future.

Co-ordinator Steve Dawe said: “I don’t accept the objections of some if they are happy to have all these electricity pylons on the landscape as well.

“They are no more obtrusive than those.”
