PS – 102:
(PS-102: Government Policy re WTs is a lottery seemingly influenced by bias!)
there would seem to be no clear policy in Government regarding wind turbines as decisions emanating from Greg Clark’s department are so varied, each from another that it would seem Justice is not even a consideration in terms o0f a level playing field.
Consider the progress of the Stroat Wind turbine application where for no apparent reason our Tory MP, Chief Whip for the party with the aim to ensure Government policy is carried out not only declined to intervene in the planning process to seek Government policy was carried out but failed even to put our case to Greg Clark in detail siting the view I QUOTE:
“It is not my responsibility to intervene even when Councillors make crap decisions“!
A brief read of the FoDDC Planning Committee’s deliberations when considered with Mark Harper MP’s failure to seek justice and the utter failure of the Council to represent the interests of the effected communioty or the Parish Council leaves a very bad taste in the mouth and seems perversde and vexatious despite the denials that the Councillor who made the application, Maria Edfwards, was councillor on FoDDC and as a first termer was coincidentally on the planning committee!
You will have noted that when the High Court reviewed our application they too felt the process was amiss and have granted the right of Judicial Review to an applicant from the Parish Peter Wright.
It is always a relief to know ones personal judgement is not out of order, though there is never a wrong time to do the right thing it is pleasing to note that the High Court considers the matter to be worth of investigation.
Clearly Justice has not been seen to be done in the light of this application, from the viewpoint of the overwhellming majority of the effected community!
Mendip District Council had refused to grant planning permission for the erection of four wind turbines with a maximum blade tip height of up to 80 metres, together with a substation and associated works including two temporary anemometer masts for a period of up to 12 months.
The development was proposed for a site adjacent to Torr Works, Somerset.
Following an appeal, a planning inspector recommended that a split decision be issued, with the appeal allowed and planning permission granted insofar as it related to the proposed temporary anemometer masts, but refused insofar as it related to the proposed wind turbines and other associated development.
The decision was recovered by Greg Clark because it related to a renewable energy development.
A decision letter said that he agreed with the inspector’s conclusions.
The letter said that Clark concluded that the application would conflict with the council’s local plan policy DP3 which relates to heritage conservation.
“As the achievement of sustainable development is central to the local plan and the National Planning Policy Framework, the proposed wind turbines would not therefore accord with the development plan when read as a whole”, the letter said.
The letter said that Clark attached “considerable weight” to the development’s economic benefits alongside its contribution to cutting greenhouse gas emissions and the supply of renewable energy.
However, it added that, weighing against these benefits “is the totality of the harm to the setting of grade II and grade II* listed designated heritage assets. Like the Inspector, the Secretary of State has had special regard to the desirability of preserving the settings of the listed buildings … He attributes considerable weight to this harm.”
In addition, the letter added that the application did not meet the provisions set out in theJune 2015 written ministerial statement (WMS).
“As the secretary of state has found a number of harms arising from the proposal he concludes that the planning impacts identified by the affected communities have not been addressed, the proposed scheme would not meet the requirements of the transitional arrangements set out in the WMS; and the secretary of state gives significant weight to this non-compliance.”

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.
