Why we are doing what we are doing

This site has been created because we are concerned about inappropriately large wind turbines.

We are not anti-wind or anti-renewables and we haven't objected to the smaller developments in the area. However, recently there have been projects at various stages of planning that are three and four times the size of any of the turbines that are currently in the area. Unlike the existing Turbine projects, these benefit the few, to the massive detriment of the community.

We are not nimbys

Communities and individuals usually only start looking into the effectiveness of wind power when it becomes something that directly affects them, such as when plans for a wind farm in the local area are being discussed.  It’s at this point when research is undertaken that you begin to realise it’s not reducing carbon footprint, even the landowners who site turbines on their land agree they only do it for the ‘subsidies’.
