farm campaigners to rally opposition at consultation event
fighting plans to build a controversial new wind farm near Burnham-On-Sea
have urged local people to attend a special consultation day being
held this Friday (April 8th) to rally opposition against the scheme.
The Huntspill Wind Farm Action Group is arranging its Wind
Farm Public Consultation Day at Woolavington Village Hall this
Friday between 10.30am and 8.00pm.
Julie Trott told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "The event will include
a 'walk-in presentation' of displays and information, answers
to wind farm questions, and advice on writing objection letters
to Sedgemoor District Council."
Energy Renewables wants to build five wind turbines on farmland
between the former Royal Ordinance Factory and the Huntspill River
near East Huntspill.
The details of the new application, including the precise locations
of the proposed wind turbines and the associated infrastructure,
can be viewed on Sedgemoor District Council's website or at the
councils offices at Bridgwater House in Bridgwater.
A council spokeswoman said: "Residents are welcome and encouraged
to comment on the application and may do so by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
or by letter. Letters should be marked for the attention of Development
Management and make reference to the application number 54/11/00004/CG."
