Well after thousand of hours of effort by all of us we learnt today that EDF Energy Renewables are withdrawing their appeal against the planning refusal for Bullington Cross Wind Farm. This is no real surprise given recent Government announcements; but still a great shame.
2,845 of us wrote/email/contacted the local planners, local Councillors and local MPs supporting the wind farm. Unfortunately we have been ignored – for now! Thanks to all your efforts the wind farm become the most widely supported wind farm application ever. A copy of HREC’s press release is attached. Press Release July 2015. Please have a look at it and send it on to friends and colleagues. Our local authorities cannot ignore us for ever. Sooner or later they will have to accept the inevitability of renewable energy and the benefits it brings to us all.
HREC continues to grow and we have a number of other community renewable energy projects in the pipeline. Watch this space!!
Of course if you want to give your views to your local council/parliamentary representative please feel free to do so.
