EDF Lodges Appeal Against Refusal of Planning Permission for Bullington Cross Wind Farm.
Although TCI Renewables have decided not to appeal against the decision to refuse planning consent for a wind farm on Woodmancott Down the news is not so good for those opposing the development of another wind farm on the Hampshire Downs at Bullington Cross.
EDF Energy Renewables lodged appeals with the Planning Inspectorate prior to 16th December 2014 deadline. For details of this application and why it is so damaging to the countryside please visit www.keephampshiregreen.org.More News
Plans have been submitted to put 6 giant wind turbines at Woodmancott on the Hampshire Downs.
At 130 metres, each one is 30 metres taller than Big Ben and will be visible from 20 miles away.
They will be the only blot on the unspoilt landscape between Basingstoke and Winchester and comfortably the largest structures between London and Lands End.
And it's not just the turbines, TCI Renewables, the developer, wants to turn farmland into access roads and hard standing for cranes, there's the cabling and power stations and all the other infrastructure that comes with industrial-scale power generation.
This is the second wind farm proposal in the area this year - and if one is approved, more could follow.
This proposal means environmental destruction, turbine noise, more traffic, and visual blight.
We are planning to fight this all the way and we need your help.
