It seems Alvington & Aylburton’s ‘effected community’ have been as soundly betrayed by its elected representatives as have those in Stroat to date, as the growing Wind Farm is constructed in the Severn Estuary – a Wind Farm which largely fails in the aim to produce viable energy from renewable sources as not only are these monstrous industrial edifices grossly inefficient and thus require massive tax payer subsidies to enrich their owners, but the carbon footprint of their construction is massive at over at over 240 tonnes of CO2 & utilising over 220 tonnes of coal in their construction but also they cause huge environmental damage.
Many turbines will never pay back the huge cost in CO2 emissions that their construction causes – it is estimated between 12 & 15 years (the average lifespan of these monstrosities) on optimum output may just about even out the CO2 output/damage.
Then not only do they tend to slaughter birds, particularly migratory birds, for which the Severn Estuary is a gathering point but also many other species of birds and bats, but in environmental terms who will clear up the mess and pay for the damage done when we are left with the 480 m3 concrete plinth containing 45 tonnes of rebar – and what will be the CO2 output, not to mention cost, of the work to undo the mess created and transporting it away and dumping it where?
Clearly this is NOT a clean energy project and it will indubitably damage the environment, the amenities and the society at a huge cost to the tax payers – just who benefits and how from these wind turbines other than the owners – the legitimised bribes (claimed as benefits) are clearly funded by & with money extorted from the community and tax payers under dishonest false pretences.
The lies about ‘Community Benefit’ are no more than legitimised bribes using our own money – which shows just how corrupt Government and politicians can be, in their efforts to establish a Carbon Credit global reserve currency to hide the collapse of the current fiduciary system due to their long term mismanagement and buying votes to stay in over paid sinecures, with money they did not have available to spend on indulgences, funding populist campaigns with other peoples’ borrowed money to buy their own popularity!
These huge turbines are not only grossly inefficient as power producers but are also obscenely environmentally damaging and as you know don’t pay without enforced taxation to fund and subsidise the self serving wealthy owners, who seem indifferent to the damage they are doing to our country and its peoples just to line their own pockets.

THE blades to a controversial community wind turbine – which was passed after a year-long appeal – has been installed in Alvington.
The turbine, in Court Lane, is the second project by The Resilience Centre to come into operation following the erection at Great Dunkilns Farm in St Briavels in 2013. A third application at Severndale Farm in Tidenham was passed in August.
The turbines are expected to generate at least £3.5million over the next 25 years for local causes, and are part of a drive for clean energy projects with environmental, social and economic benefits.
Sue Clarke, at the Woolaston-based centre, said: “This is the third application that has been approved by the council in four years, which we are delighted about.
“We predict that the Alvington Court and Severndale Farm turbines over 25 years could each give £1.5million to the community while St Briavels can give £500,000.
“The turbine at St Briavels has already raised more than £25,000 for local causes.”
The application was passed last August despite public concern it would pose a ‘noise and visual’intrusion.
The application was submitted to the council in October 2012, nine months later it was refused by planning officers who claimed there were possible ‘heritage concerns’.
The applicants appealed the decision and last August it was passed.
Mrs Clarke said: “Although the project was opposed by some of the parish residents, it is well-supported by many people.”
The energy generated is sold onto the national grid with any profits given back to the community.
Mrs Clarke added: “Resilient Energy Alvington Court Renewables has been formed as a co-operative society known as a Community Benefit Company which includes the landowner, the Resilience Centre and ethical investors – more than half from Gloucestershire. Investors do so on the understanding they will both receive returns and be providing for the community.”

I wonder what the ‘Effected Community’ were told & their views
Not to mention the distraction factor increasing fatalities on the A48:
A view down the High St. (A48) in Aylburton!
It is also worth noting that this odious excrecence on the landscape, so close to homes, is situated well below the A48, unlike the plans for Stroat where the final result will tower above the A48 by at least 320 feet – almost 100 meters!
We believe the information gathered on this site can act to bring the truth, regarding the dishonesty of the claimed benefits of Wind Turbines 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), areas of outstanding natural beauty (AoONB)
Please help to spread the truth about the Wind Turbine scam and the fundamental flaws and lies that 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.
