On 3 August 2010 E.ON withdrew their application for the West Ancroft wind farm. So the Northumberland County Council Central Planning Committee did not, in the end, have to deliberate on it.
E.ON, the big energy company, has applied to build a wind farm of 8 turbines 115m tall at West Ancroft, south of Berwick upon Tweed - the fourth such application in a small area of beautiful tranquil countryside close to Holy Island and with spectacular views to the Cheviot Hills and out over the Farne Islands.The turbines are only 550m away from the nearest houses.
This development will have an unacceptable impact on the landscape and on the amenity of local residents.
We, the undersigned, ask the members of the Central Planning Committee of Northumberland County Council to reject the application by E.ON to build a wind farm at West Ancroft.
The Stop West Ancroft Wind Farm petition to Central Planning Committee of Northumberland County Council was written by Ian Corsie and is in the category Environment at GoPetition.
