61 Metre Turbine Appeal.


61 Metre Turbine Appeal.

On the 11th December 2012, Shepway Development Control Committee
debated the Single turbine application proposed by Windberry
Operations on Farmer Price's land. The whole committee had no
hesitation in throwing it out. Windberry Operations have now appealed
against the SDC decision. You now have the chance to make further
comments but please be brief, to the point and should be made
before midnight, 4th March, 2013.

Important points to be made should be : The turbine impacts AONB
landscape, both viewing from AONB and into (as backdrop) AONB land.
All members of the Development Control Committee opposed the
application with one Councillor citing Mrs Justice Laing's comments
that 'Wind turbines shouldn't take precedence over natural beauty'.
Comments made should be 'material planning considerations'.

Please go to the planning portal website:

The link should work, but if not, put in:
and then follow it through to "search for cases", then put in the
search box the reference 2191109. At the bottom of the page is the
link for making comments. Away you go.

All the best.

Site Under Construction

Hello my name is Kyle,
Dave and the Sellindge and District Residents Association have kindly left the website in my care.

Interview on Radio Kent - Monday 18th February

If you think your house value won't be affected by Ecotricity's monstrous wind turbines, think again. In a ruling last month by the Advertising Standards Authority, Ecotricity have now had to withdraw the claim made that "Wind Farms have no long term detrimental effect on house prices".

You can hear our interview with Bob Dale on Radio Kent (96.7FM or 104.2FM) on Monday morning, 18th February, at 6.39am and 8.39am. Our representatives are Les Barratt (Initial complainant), Mandy Tragner, Ronald Lello and Richard Smithson.

UK renewables (Umberella group for the wind farm industry) will have the right to reply at 7.39am.

Please tune in and listen and let us know your feelings at

Kind regards
Les Barratt
