Campaign group welcomes parliamentary hopeful in battle against turbines plan

The Stop Stretham Wind Farm action group met at the Red Lion pub last Tuesday to discuss the re-submission of plans for two new turbines in the village.

Farmer Chris Attle has applied to East Cambridgeshire District Council for permission to erect two 75metre high turbines on Red Hill Farm, in Cambridge Road, an arable and beef farm.

The blades of the two turbines will stretch more than 50m in diameter and, at maximum capacity, the turbines will be capable of generating enough power for hundreds of homes.

The campaign group was set up in July when the plans first surfaced and meetings have been held regularly to decide a course of action.

A spokesman said: “The object is to raise awareness and to encourage letters of protest to East Cambs District Council.

“On Tuesday we had a very successful tea and cake meeting with prospective Conservative candidate Lucy Frazer as guests of Peter and Maureen Lee at Grove House, Stretham.

“We were able to voice our concerns of wind turbines locally, of the new application at Red Hill Farm.”
