From: Robert Hillman P&C
Sent: 16 August 2015 17:36
Subject: Private – Calling in Procedure request in relation to 87m wind turbine on edge of River Severn Estuary – planning application no. P0365/15/FUL Change of use of agricultural land to wind turbine and installation – Severndale Farm Tidenham Chepstow NP16
Dear Minister,

On Tuesday 11th August the Forest of Dean District Council Planning Committee resolved to grant consent to the above application (the Application).

The outcome is of national importance, as the Planning Committee verbal decision was made with a disregard and/or misunderstanding for full and proper consideration of your 18th June 2015 guidance in relation to impacts on the “local affected community”.

I write, as a representative of the local affected community, and to request the “Calling in” of the Application for your own determination. Accordingly, with respect, this matter requires your urgent attention, given that the written decision of the Forest of Dean District Council application is now imminently pending.


THIS SECTION CURRENTLY WITHELD PENDING RESPONSE FROM THE MINISTER CONCERNED so as to be assured we are not in any way prejudicing our legal position in the long run.
Please acknowledge receipt of this email correspondence by return

Your sincerely

Robert Hillman

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.

Arm yourself with facts to defeat the biggest con of the late 20th and early 21st Century, and do please spread the truth and the URL of this site as widely as you can.
