No to wind turbine  

Credit:  Southern Daily Echo | 22 April 2015 | www.dailyecho.co.uk ~~

A plan for a giant wind turbine, that would have posed a danger to bats, on farmland in Hampshire has been kicked out.

Sparsholt College wanted to build a 74-metre turbine as part of its renewable energy teaching.

But Winchester councillors heard that bats could be hit after being drawn into the vortex created by the turbines.

The scheme attracted more than 200 letters of support but mainly from people outside the local area. There were 119 letters of objection.

The city council’s planning committee of ten members unanimously rejected the scheme.
