Bradford MP leads protest about lack of notification of wind turbine near Queensbury

A Bradford MP is leading the opposition to a 77-metre high wind turbine that he says could dominate Queensbury’s skyline from neighbouring Calderdale.

A planning application for a turbine at Swales Moor Mink Farm has been lodged by the Leo Group.

Gerry Sutcliffe (Lab, Bradford South) said: “I’m very concerned about the proposed wind turbine at Swales Moor. In particular, I don’t believe that many of the people in Queensbury who will be most affected by it will even be aware that a planning application has been submitted.

“Calderdale council only notified a small number of households and we’re talking about a 77-metre high turbine. While we need to encourage alternative energy technologies, there does have to be a balance struck with the quality of life of people living near them.”
