shows how wind farm would tower over Highbridge
farm protesters have released this new photomontage to illustrate
how a potential wind farm near Highbridge would tower over the
reported last week
that Gaoh Energy has submitted plans for a 60 metre tall weather
mast in Alstone, near Highbridge.
Maund, spokesman for the NoPilrow group which is fighting plans
for a wind farm in nearby Rooksbridge, told Burnham-On-Sea.com:
"In its application, Gaoh has not stated the underlying reason
for this met mast, other than to measure wind speeds. However,
the firm is dedicated to the development of on and offshore renewable
is not unreasonable to think that this met mast may be the precursor
to a proposed wind farm with turbines, potentially 110-120 metres
high, as illustrated here."
added: "This latest application could possibly be another
attempt by wind farm developers to milk the overly generous subsidies,
paid by the consumer in their electricity bills. The wind farm
epidemic is like the gold rushes of the 19th century, only this
time it is the subsidy rush."
"We have good reasons to believe that there could be many
more wind farms in the pipeline for Somerset."
as a community, must act now to stop Somerset being obliterated
by wind farms. I urge everyone to submit their objections to both
Pilrow Wind Farm and this Met Mast to Sedgemoor planners as soon
