An Apparent Press Release In Favour of a Wind Turbine In Stroat That lacks Veracity, Balance Or Integrity! …

it is interesting to note from the aparent PRESS RELEASE by those who stand to gain the most from this environmentally damaging, inefective & clearly resoundingly rejected concept that requires obscene amounts of subsidy considering the near total failure of Wind Turbines to produce a viable output of electricity to feature on the local or national grid reliably enough to permit the switch off of more sensible methods of production such as nuclear..

Be minded that there is no balance to the Forester’s article of the 21-Feb-2018 in that it merely published the statement of the ambitions of the profiting company with no apparent fact checking!

You will of course be minded that the Local Government Officers, trained in such matters and having researched the proposed planning application reported to the Council and strongly recommended against the application being granted leave to proceed.

In my opinion and having listened to the matter at the planning committee the Council acted in palpable ignorance of any relevant facts and in a clearly vexatious manner when you consider the overwhellming preponderance of objection to the application, both by the professional Officers of their own Council and of the facts pertaining to the application, not least of which was the overwhellming opposition to the scheme from the residents within sight and sound of the proposed monstrosity right on the bank of the River Severn, visible from miles around.

Seemingly the only individuals in favour were those drummed up from out of the area and either family, tenants or employees of the land ower who aimed to profit from the subsidies + any potential income!

It was also worthy of note that the landowner herself was in a position to influence the application being a newly elected Counciller who had moved within days of the election onto the Planning Committee. Having nevert mentioned her application during the election nor having shown any talent, expertise or experience in planning matters!

The decision to appeal the questionable decision of the planning committe to grant the application made in Moira Edwards’ name with the commercial support of Resiliance, was made by the residents of the area effected in the name of Peter Wright and supported in his aims by the clear majority of effected businesses and residents who life and lifestyle would clearly be damaged by the instalation, which would likely give rise to a loss of jobs in the area.

The Appeal Judge upheld the appeal application & the vexatious Council decision was overturned. It was overturned on the limited list of reasons Peter Wright’s barristers felt needed to be fielded. There were many sound reasons for rejection of the plan, though few sustainable reasons in its favour have ever been put forward by the applicants – leading one to believe the matter was mainly being progressed for the personal; profit of a few wealthy individuals!

The latest appeal was granted to Peter Wright by 3 Judges voting unanimously against the scheme. Once again Peter Wright’s barristers felt they had no need of the many other reasons against the plan as Resiliance had failed to field any compelling reason for the application beyond seemingly that of their own profit, from which they undertook to pay what seemed to be a bribe, by way of paying back some of the subsidies and a portion of any revenue AFTER they had taken they management fees!

The repayment was beiguillingly deemed to be a ‘Community Fund’ and their highly profitable (for them) scheme was mastery of aesopian English calling it a ‘Community Wind Turbine’.

Here is The Forester’s unchallenged and seemingly unchecked Press Release by the applicant Resiliance:

FORESTER 21-Feb-2018 01 re Supreme Court

It is interesting to have read the applicants documentation of their proposed appeal to the Supreme Court – The first point of interest is that Our Council has withdrawn its support for the appeal, on that note it is also worthy of note that the Tidenham Parish Council has opposed the installation on every occassion on which it has been put to them to vote.

Further it is interesting to note that the applicants nor their legal advisors have put forward any new evidence to be considerred and thus have no compelling case for the application to the Supreme Court, it would seem.

I also note they are still using the misleading language of these giant windturbines so very damaging in many ways are somehow ‘Community Wind Turbines’ when any bribe paid to the public would seem to be funded by the public’s own investment extorted from them under pretence of the efficacy of wind turbines as a power source which they are most questionably able to fullfill.

We should also note when wind turbines are installed there would seem to be no financial provission made for tyheir removal at the end of their subsidy generating life cycle, nor for the massive damage done by the immense concretye block on which they stand and seemingly no provission for the huge carbon footprint of both their manufacture nor their dismantling – indeed just how do the erectors plan to remove the huge reinforced concrete block and all the waste and dust and tons of steel? and at whose expense or is this where the ‘Community’ learn just how large was their involvement in the wind turbine as no doubt the original profiteers will be long gone!

May I also point out that it is my suspicion that once the requisite number of turbines are installed the installers will vote themselves a very lucrative maintenance & management contract with adequate let outs and then sell tyhe primary ownership to new owners with no legal responsibility to in any way contribute to the ‘Community’ they would seem to have so competently sold their scam to!

I for one see little or no merit in Wind Turbines either as a genuine and honourable investment nor as a solution to power generation whether green or any other fashionable colour!

Let us hope the Supreme Court has had the wisdom to see through the scam as increasingly politicians around the world have!

Judicial Review Shows FoDDC Has A Case To Answer re Corruption Of Due Process

Help To Arm People
With The Truth & Facts
To Make Their Case & Defend Themselves


you will be pleased to note the clear display of the Crowd Justice site where people can read the facts and realise that the planning consent was clearly ultra vires & councillors on the planning committee blatantly ignored the law in a manner which seemed pre arranged and thus would seemt o have corrupted due process.
That the Judicial Review was granted is a clear indication by a High Court Judge that there is a case to answer and there is every possibility that the High Court will uphold our claim and clarify the law, to ensure Justice is seen to be done.
The claims of ‘Community Funding’ & ‘Community Benefit’ are clearly aesopian linguistics designed to dupe the gullible particularly in the efforts to develope this wind farm by stealth based on dishonest claims and misrepresentations by the applicant, Maria Edwards – who is a local councillor on the planning committee, together with her agents and partners!
Wednesday, 23 March 2016 in Local People

One of several banners that have been erected along the A48 in the Stroat area supporting a judicial review.

A LEGAL battle over a proposed wind turbine in the Forest could have major implications for similar projects across England.

The scheme for a 500-kilowatt ‘community energy project’ at Severndale Farm at Stroat, which was given the go-ahead by the Forest Council last summer, is now subject to judicial review.
The action has been brought by Mr Peter Wright who lives close to the proposed site of the turbine which would be 87-metres tall at the tip of the blade.
He says he and many of his neighbours are concerned about a series of single wind turbines being created along the Severn estuary.
A High Court hearing is due to take place next month at which a key argument will be about the ‘community benefits’ that such developments bring to an area.
But supporters of community turbines are concerned that if the court backs Mr Wright it could make it more difficult for the public to get involved in backing renewable energy projects.
Both sides agree the judgement will set a clear legal precedent for determining applications for turbine.
Each has used “crowd-funding” websites to raise money to meet the cost of legal advice.
In a statement on
the website www.crowd, Mr Wright said: “I am one of some 100 local residents living near the Severn Estuary in the Forest of Dean, who are concerned about the proliferation of single wind turbines being installed in the Severn Estuary, damaging the lovely rural landscape.
“Whilst I, and many others, accept the benefits of wind turbines in the right place, a series of single turbines, backed by the same developer, all within the same rural setting, is totally unjustified.
“It is creating a wind farm landscape by stealth.
“If successful, this challenge will ensure that no other council can act with such impunity in the face of the overwhelming views of the local community and in breach of planning guidelines regarding alleged community benefits.”
The Woolaston-based Resilience Centre, which is developing the Severndale turbine has used the website www.crowd to raise support.
In a statement on the site it says: “The judgement that will arise from this case is very likely to be important in establishing case law and clear guidelines on what can be offered in the way of community participation and what can be taken as positive community benefits by councillors when making a decision.
“The threat to the community energy sector is that a ruling could emerge which places additional constraints on the ability of the public to participate in renewable energy generation or renders the sector even more uncertain that promoters, public and decision makers are all deterred from participating in or supporting the sector.
“A succesful outcome would establish a key new legal precedent for the community energy sector in the UK, allowing planning authorities to give clear positive weight to projects with overriding local community benefits.”
The case is due to be heard by a judge on Thursday, April 21.

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.
