Urgent

B Castle

Alert, alert! Have you heard the latest news on the Bodham and Selbrigg wind turbine appeal? Unless we all act now there will be two new onshore turbines in our skyline, so close to the AONB and on one of the highest points in North Norfolk. Thousands of you will have written to the Council objecting to these developments. Thousands of you will have written twice, three times but the government have ignored our voices and those of North Norfolk District Council. The people have spoken but are not being heard! This is despite the reassurance from the government that developments of this type will not be allowed unless they have the backing of the local community. Following last week’s appeal decision to allow both turbines the Council’s only recourse is to challenge the Inspectors decision in the High Court. They are considering their position. Please write to them NOW and show your support for their continued battle. They need to make their decision in the next week. It is vitally important that they know how strongly we feel.

Wind Turbine Debacle

An appeal against NNDC’s refusal for two wind turbines of 256 ft and 216 ft respectively at Pond Farm Bodham has been allowed. To say that this is a tragedy for north Norfolk is an understatement. These monsters will be visible from as far away as Wells and Burnham Overy and be dominant from many other points within the AONB.  From a non-professional point of view such a decision seems completely crazy, it flies in the face of common sense and clearly lacks any real under standing of the setting; whether it is equally flawed in legal terms is something that must be clarified as it would determine whether a Judicial Review would be justified. Inspectors decisions are not easily overturned but I cannot believe that a decision as stupid as this one could not be thrown out.

The group called NOTTT have fought so hard against this scheme and must be broken hearted at this result, which from any rational expectation must be a shock. So I would request that all the Friends of North Norfolk rally to support any initiative they or NNDC may make in respect of this disaster.
