Should know better on wind farms  

Credit:  The Press | 5th July 2013 | www.yorkpress.co.uk ~~

The ancient walled city of York has been high on the list of places to visit by tourists for many years because of its history, beauty and culture.

Tourism has become a very important part of our economy and provides employment for many local people.

Much of the city has remained unchanged for centuries, and as you approach from any of the main roads that lead up to the Bar entrances you can see the magnificent city walls and the Minster standing there in all its glory.

Most of the approach roads are quite welcoming, which is what you would expect from a place that wants to encourage visitors to come and spend money in our hotels, shops, museums and restaurants.

So why would anyone who understands what attracts visitors to our beautiful city do anything that would discourage them from coming?

Surrounding the city with wind farms would certainly not go down as an added attraction or an improvement to the entrances to our city, or the environment, and could even discourage them from coming at all.

For many years our city planners have protected our listed buildings, the green belt areas and our parks to ensure York retained its beauty for future generations.

I think they would be very disappointed at what is being proposed now by the very people who should know better.

Ron Perrin, Moor Lane, Acomb Park, York.
