Wind farm plan for rubbish tip: Campaigners petition Eric Pickles

A petition against proposed turbines at the WRG Ironstone Quarry waste site on Coleby Road, near Winterton, has been submitted to Parliament.

Brigg and Goole MP Andrew Percy submitted the petition on behalf of town residents.

The proposals would bring the total number of built, consented or planned wind turbines in just the immediate area around the town to more than 60.

North Lincolnshire Council rejected the application, which is now at the appeals stage.

The Winterton Against Inappropriate Turbines (WAIT) group, which started the petition, is calling for Eric Pickles MP, Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, to recover the appeal, and want him to ensure that key issues of landscape, heritage and cumulative impact are taken into account.
