Decision due on Yorkshire Wolds Wind Turbines at West Heslerton

[adsenseyu1]

CONTROVERSIAL plans for ten wind turbines on the Yorkshire Wolds are being recommended for approval by Ryedale District Council planners today.

While 380 letters of objection have been sent to the council, 552 have been written in support of siting a RWE Npower Renewables Ltd wind farm at Ling Hall Farm, West Heslerton.

Objectors claim the development will blight the landscape, that the turbines produce little power when assessed against the harm they create, that the turbines will create shadow flicker and damage the local tourism industry, and they will be seen from as far away as Scarborough, the Vale of Pickering and the North York Moors.
