The Vandalising Of Posters Opposing The Environmentally Damaging Turbines

Hi,

it is worthy of note that in that the majority of the supporters of opposition to this grossy offensive, environmentally damaging and staggeringly inefficient Wind Turbine live in the immediate area of the proposed Turbine, letters, meetings and general communications have been not only amicable but have acted to an extent as news letters promoting local events.

The opposition has given rise to many in the community meeting for the first time and a local directory of phone numbers, eMail addresses and information as to who lives where and the occupancy of the homes in the area.

There is absolutely no doubt that the overwhellming majority of the people living in the area of influence of the Turbine, if we are unfortunate enough to have it imposed are opposed to the installation – not on some specious NIMBY grounds but based on clearly understood factual reasons.

The few who seem to pretend to support for the proposed Turbine would seem to have links with the applicant either as family, friends, associates, tennants or employees – seemingly indicating other reasons for support than considerations of the benefits claimed, we would contend dishonestly, for Turbines.

Hi Everyone,

I felt a contact was called for in the light of a few events. As you know we have done a blanket contact to a large part of the area and put up a banner campaign to highlight the fact that we are still fighting Resilience erecting their turbine.

As expected this has caused some reaction and last night the banner at Tesco’s was slashed
WT - POSTER VANDALISM 01
and there were some unnecessary comments left on a leaflet on the banner at the end of our gate. The upside of this is that in creating a reaction it demonstrates that some elements of the other side are really feeling frustrated.

As you know we are into the last few days for crowd justice which closes on Friday night and if we don’t hit our target then none of the pledges will be used. It would be great if we were able to get to our target. I say this because the overall costs for the proceedings for JR is in the region of £40 – 50K and although we have a large part of this underwritten, it would be fantastic if as locals we could manage the £5K through the local community.

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.

JR, Your MP Mark Harper & General Update 20-Feb-2016 From Molly Mayo

.

Dear Everyone
Apologies for the late arrival of this email after our meeting on the 10th, amongst other things I have had phone and internet problems so hopefully all is now back on track.
Thanks to those who came to Little Wibdon and to those of you who were in touch by email or have enquired about the topics under discussion. As I hope everyone knows, we have our Judicial Review hearing for April 21st (as long as the courts keep to their timetable) and some of us are intending to attend this event.  There was a suggestion to investigate a minibus, since Buxton’s commented that some support for the event demonstrates commitment from those who have asked for the JR, and I will look into the cost of hiring a minibus and let you know.
We all felt the need to continue to be proactive and it was suggested we send Mark Harper our concerns and thoughts just to let him and ‘others’ know we are not going away and will continue this fight no matter what.  I have checked his email address and found it different from last time I used it  –
I haven’t used it yet and would be grateful if anyone has difficulty using it- please would you let me know. Last time several of us tried to contact him we had problems so it’s helpful to know if the same happens again.
Some suggested areas which you might wish to make him aware of could include
                  We have been granted JR
                  
                  The affected community has not been defined for this application and he should put pressure on the FODDC to identify this.
                  The Parish Council continue to be opposed and deserve his support – after all they should be considered part of the affected community.
                  The Crowd Justice site helps identify the local concern about the Severndale Wind Turbine.
 
                  The Allocation Plan which includes suitable sites for renewables does not identify wind turbines specifically and these are industrial structures – re Alvington.
                  The Allocation Plan now being considered by an inspector was considered by the FODDC last summer and Government policy has significantly changed.
                  We were dealt with unfairly by our councillors since their reason for passing the application is now for Judicial Review.
                  A significant number of the people in the locality do not want this turbine.
                  Government cannot afford the subsidies originally offered for wind turbines and in these times of austerity these grants and subsidies should be stopped.
If you wish to have further information about the Allocation Plan the following reference from Peter Williams, the Head of FODDC planning may be  useful – note the page reference
The portfolio group at the time discounted a bespoke policy on wind turbines. Ultimately a new policy on renewable energy was formulated and has been included in the Council’s Allocations Plan Submission Draft August 2015 Please see Policy AP.2 on page 22 of the document.
Also thanks to the folks at Woolaston this reference is worth looking at
from this document go to the Examination pages and then Examination Process.
Should we be contacting the Inspector with our comments about wind turbines? Thoughts on this would be useful. 
So – please would you find the time to write to Mark Harper using any of the suggested areas plus your own ideas.  It doesn’t matter how short but if he could receive them between now and March 11th (3 weeks) it would make a significant impact before Easter and before JR in April. 
The new Crowd Funding site went live on Friday (19th) so if you can make people aware of it, or forego an Easter egg in the name of the cause, it would be appreciated – it’s numbers we are after to show we really are here.
And finally, as always, thanks for your support we will continue to keep in touch
Keep safe and take care
Molly

(PS-102: Government Policy re WTs is a lottery seemingly influenced by bias!)

Hi,

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!

Clark refuses four-turbine Somerset wind farm

The communities secretary has refused plans for a four-turbine wind farm in Somerset after concluding that, amongst other factors weighing against the proposal, it would be contrary to local heritage-related planning policy.

Communities secretary Greg Clark
Communities secretary Greg Clark

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.”
