(PS-26: to scale pictures of Turbine
in correct location!)

PARISH COUNCIL PLANNING COMMITTEE:

19:00hrs 27-May-2015 @ Tidenham Memorial Hall
The planning committee of 6 elected councillors considered the Planning Application to Industrialise the Hanley Hill agricultural Severndale Farm site with a massive Wind Turbine.

Some 40 members of the public, 6 members of the planning committee and the admin clerk Kevin Duffin attended.

The public were permitted to comment and Liz Brown of Wibdon Cottage, Stroat started the ball rolling with a well researched list of reasons for opposition to the application including the fact that the various surveys were flawed being long out of date and also that no meaningful consultation with the ‘community’ had been undertaken there having been only a sales exhibition some 3 years ago!
She also presented some far more accurate representations of both the location and the size of the monsterous turbine which were provided to the committee and passed around, though not as large and glossy as those provided by the applicants at the previous Council meeting they were clearly better representations of the reality of both the siting and the size of the turbine.

WIND TURBINE LOCATION to SCALE 05 from FOOTPATH above PHILPOTS COURT FARM05. Wind Turbine to Scale from Footpath above Philpots Court Farm

Mrs. Brown was followed by David Mitchell-Smith of the Old Post Office, Stroat who, being a retired Police Inspector, showed the many reasons why the siting of a large wind turbine dominating the A48 was dangerously even potentially fatally inappropriate in terms of safety and showed how the paultry sums allegedly likely to pass to the community of around £25K were insignificant when a fatality would cost us around £1.9M whilst a serious injury would cost some £250K and even a mild injury would cost around £20K and to be minded that frequently injuries in an RTA where impact speeds of 100 > 120mph could be reasonably expected were frequently multiple with multiple costs!

A gentleman from Sedbury stated that he was in favour of the scheme, without consideration of the downside risks and damage, as he had bought into the propaganda of anthropogenic global warming & the climate change story and the need for these installations, he also let on that he was an investor in the St. Briavels turbine – thus presumably profitting from the obscene subsidies granted to these false solutions to energy supply!

The retired councillor Bernard Bowshall spoke in an informed manner in opposition addressing the fact that such turbines were grossly inefectual in producing energy and the siting of this installation at the proposed venue was wholely inappropriate.

Greg Lance – Watkins of Home Cottage, Stroat spoke next stating that not only was he domicile in Stroat but had lived in the immediate area for some 35 years and was opposed in both general and in specific to the installation of these wind turbines as they were not fit for purpose to effectively produce electricity, were anti community, unsightly and contra the interests of the electorater locally and the principles of conservation both in terms of the topography, the wildlife and the numerous points of historic interest in very close proximity such as a Roman Mint, a Roman Temple site, a Roman Mansio, a Roman villa and the fact that Roman coins had been found on the land – further that Hanley Hill on which the turbine was to be sited, destroying the integrity of the hill had never been propery excavated despite the fact that it was the site of the Moot for Tidenham, where all major events in the parish/area were discussed or celebrated from the Medieval period and long before. The fact that the A48 was a Roman road yet was the most dangerous road in the EU was once again raised.

Sue Davies for the applicant then spoke with a repeat of her sales pitch of the previous Parish Council meeting, which I found to be aggressive, fairly incoherent, misleading and utterly unconvincing, wherein she picked off points that she found selectively suitable yet failed to justyify the installation or its location.

The meeting then continued with the Planning Committee making various points, there was near unanimity in the belief that the site was totally inappropriate, it was also stated that there was no clear case for wind turbines as a viable alternative power source, and seemingly the effective bribe of a payment from the subsidies by the applicants to the community at large was dismissed as the irrelevant sop that it clearly is, and the matter was not mentioned. That there was an Act of Parliament precluding the building of such industrial installations within 1,500 meters of domestic properties was also highlighted as were the limited exceptions to that Law, none of which would seem to apply.
Only one voice of disent was heard from the failed Green candidate in the recent elections, who had however retained her Parish Council seat, who extolled the benefits of wind turbines with something of a lack of factual data though she did assure those present that she had spent a considerable amount of time with the applicant’s professional partners Sue & Andrew Davis of Resiliance listening to their case in favour! She did however claim that she considered these industrial edifices to be a thing of beauty!

Fortunately the Council committee was not swayed by her rather strange presentation which seemed to totally overlook the position of the residents of the parish or those effected – when it came to the vote Dr. Fiona Bowie was the only person in favour and the other 5 councillors on the elected planning committee were resolutely opposed.

Personally from her arguments in favour and the manner in which she presented them, spiritted as her blandishments may have been, however unconvincing I and other residents found them to be, I would doubt her Doctorate to be in Logic!

 

We believe the information gathered on this site can act to bring the truth, regarding the dishonesty of the claimed benefits of Wind Turbines (WT) to the front of people’s minds as they are regularly taxed, in a hidden tax, on their energy bills to fund these politically correct and fundamentally all but useless monstrosities.

We have gathered a great deal of information in our efforts to prevent the industrialisation of Stroat and the banks of the Severn Estuary and across the wider area including the Forest of Dean (FoD) as administered by The Forest of Dean District Council (FoDDC), areas of outstanding natural beauty (AoONB), sites of special scientific interest (SSI) & wildlife habitats.

Please help to spread the truth about the Wind Turbine scam and the fundamental flaws and lies of the ‘Warmists’ & self proclaimed ‘Greens’, which are presented as ‘fact’, regarding the anthropogenic influence of mankind on Global Warming and Climate Chance.

PS – 23:

27-May-2015
(PS-23: Scale Representation, Based on Google Earth View
& Planning Appeals see: PS-24 & PS-25.)

Here is a view of the wind turbine to scale, unlike the photoshop mock-ups from the applicants this places the giant turbine in its correct location – as seen on Google Earth’s view from level with a part of Hanley Lane Laybye at the Fairview end.

You will note, if you try hard, the two towers of the M48 Chepstow Severn Bridge in the photograph.

The applicant’s selected views, as displayed on the FoD planning web site, are well presented but seem to indicate the turbine will be some 90 meters from the actual site defined! Also all seem very selective, to minimise the effect of such an immense industrial structure.

(PS-22: Comments On: Bat Survey & Community ‘Size’ Scale!)

PLEASE NOTE:

In the ‘Bat Survey’ commissioned and selected by the applicant and conducted by ‘Keystone Environmental and dated 2012 they unequivocally state:

5.0
Recommendations and Requirements
Further Surveys
5.1
Further surveys would only be required if the works were delayed for a year or more. If this
were to be the case, a repeat Automated B
at
Detector Survey would be recommended before
work commenced to confirm that the bat activity status of the site and the impact assessment
remain the same as that described within this report
3 years have passed thus clearly a further bat survey is called for before the plans can be considered.
Similarly full surveys should be undertaken of other aspects and there has been absolutely no meaningful public consultation and as was shown at the public attendance at The recent Parish Council meeting no offer of current meaningful consultation was offered by the applicants who were clearly unwilling to give straight and honest answers to simple questions!

(PS-21: South Glos. Objection From B.G. Roberts Esq. )

Hi,

it is worth noting that campaigners in South Gloucestershire actively campaigning against wind turbines in Oldbury on Severn, Hill & other sites included the reasoning that it would damage the visual amenity of The Severnvale and thus North Gloucestershire and the Forest of Dean and were supported by their planning authority.

Let us hope the planners of the FoD & North Gloucestershire act with a similar sense of responsibility and reject the applicants short term personal gains whilst considering the undeniable long term damage suc h an industrial installation will cause!

Greg_L-W

Subject: Severndale Farm Turbine Objection

1 Chantry Rd.
Thornbury
South Glos.
BS35 1ER

Regarding the proposed Turbine at Severndale Farm, this will present an unacceptable intrusion on the views over the Forest of Dean from the Thornbury side of the river , for very little gain in electrical production or environmental reward. When taken together with other applications it will look like an extension of the Avonmouth skyline.
The Government Inspector recently turned down an application for Turbines in the neighbouring Parishes of Oldbury on Severn and Hill in South Glos. on grounds of environmental and visual impact on the amenity of the Severnvale.
This site is surrounded by reed beds and rhines which provide valuable cover and feeding grounds for migrating birds whose flight paths will impinge on the area covered by the Turbine blades. This is also an important feeding ground for Bats who can be disoriented by the sonic noise.
The Evironmental issues provide strong grounds for objection.

Regards
Brian Roberts
