Anti-Turbine Demonstration in Cranfield on Saturday
Posted Thursday, 19 June 2014 at 13:22



This Saturday I will attend a rally in Cranfield to oppose a planning application for the construction of a wind farm in the nearby area.

The planning application is for six turbines to be placed around the perimeter of the former land-fill site south-east of Cranfield. Their positioning has been chosen entirely according to the geography on the ground and not where they will be able to catch the most wind.

From 10:30am on Saturday an airship will be flown at turbine height, 300ft, to demonstrate the powerfully negative visual impact this project will have on Cranfield and surrounding villages in this beautiful part of the English countryside.

I’m happy to support local people in the fight to protect their villages from having these turbines imposed upon them. Wind farms are an overly-subsidised, inefficient form of generating power at the best of time. Putting one on this location aims to serve only the needs of the corporate landowner and not local people, the national grid or the taxpayer.

Anyone interested in joining us should gather on Wood End Road/ 200 yards from Lodge Road junction, Cranfield, near ‘The Kennels’. It will be clearly signed. Please bring placards and posters. Parking is available at Cranfield Court, Wood End Road. Refreshments will be available afterwards.
