Oulton wind turbine plan is withdrawn – Environment – Eastern Daily Press

A comparison of the proposed Oulton turbine against Big Ben.

A controversial wind turbine application has been withdrawn after concerns were raised by Norwich International Airport and the Ministry of Defence.

The plan for the 77m-high structure on the disused second world war airfield in Oulton, near Aylsham, was submitted to Broadland District Council by Bernard Matthews Wind Energy Co-operative in February.

It was withdrawn on Monday because of “outstanding information” on how the developers, not-for-profit organisation Energy4All, would have overcome concerns.

The plan attracted vehement opposition from Oulton residents and surrounding villages because of its potential impact on the landscape.

Concerns were also raised by the National Trust and English Heritage because of its visual impact on Blickling Hall and the surrounding conservation area.

A spokesman for Energy4All said: “Energy4All is disappointed to confirm that the planning application for the single community wind turbine at Oulton has been withdrawn.

“We will continue to seek a resolution to the MoD objection, with the intention of resubmitting the application at an appropriate time.”

It is not known when a new application will be submitted.

An MoD spokesman said an objection was made because the turbine would be 18km from the Air Defence radar at Trimingham and would cause “unacceptable interference”.

Norwich International airport also objected because the turbine would interfere with its radar.

Oulton parish councillor Sam Booker said: “Pretty much everybody was against it. Everybody is pleased and relieved.”

There were 79 letters against the plan, objections from Cawston, Blickling, Oulton and Heydon parish councils and 10 letters of support.

The RNAO: speaking out for whom?

RNAO stoops to new low!!!

Nurses for Safe Renewable Power

Registered nurses, including those who have chosen not to take membership in their provincial professional association the Registered Nurses Association of Ontario or RNAO (it is supposed to be voluntary) and those who have actually resigned over the RNAO’s hyper-politicized policies, received an interesting piece of mail last week.

If you don’t read the missives from the College, you will have missed the fact that the College will now require registered nurses to have liability insurance in excess of $1 million, no matter where, or if, you practise. The RNAO is now luring former members back with the offer of insurance coverage.

For nurses in independent practice, this is a conundrum: the RNAO offers such insurance, but then you have to rejoin at a cost of several hundred dollars, AND once again belong to this organization that has, frankly, developed a rather curious set of policy goals.

Despite increasing reports…

“The sound of birds has diminished significantly, they have gone”

Ontario Wind Resistance

CHATHAM-KENT, ONTARIO, INTERNAIONAL POWER GDF SUEZ from Lagoon Road 3I moved to the country to enjoy the quiet solitude and the sweet sounds of the wilderness. To escape the manmade structures and noise of the cities and towns. Never did I imagine, it would encroach on me. I used to sit every morning on my front step with my coffee and listen to the birds and other sounds of wildlife.

The quietness only that the country has to offer. I used this time to give thanks, re-charge, and have a personal conversation with my maker. It was a special time of my day. I no longer have that because of these windmills. The peace has been replaced with the unbelievable noise of 12 mammoth blades spinning.

Cameron signals end for the Great British Wind Scam

The sooner this scam is stopped, the better off we will be!!

STOP THESE THINGS

There’s as an old Chinese proverb that says “even a rabbit will bite when it is cornered.”

But when the targets under attack are wind weasels and the parasites that depend upon them, you can expect not just the odd rabbit-nip, but every dirty trick in the book.  Remember you’re standing between these people and a fat pile of taxpayer and power consumer cash.

The subsidy bonanza has been pulled to a screaming halt in Spain.

The Germans are lamenting the insane costs of their great wind rush – spiralling “green” power costs have resulted in 800,000 German homes being cut-off from the power supply.  And with a power punter revolt on the cards – Angela Merkel is winding back its ridiculous raft of subsidies to wind power.

Hostility to giant fans is spreading like wildfire through communities around the world.  Quite ordinary, apolitical people are now highly…

The BBC? Biased? Surely not!

Wind turbine protestors are the actual victims. Oil and gas protestors are “greentards”, rebels without a cause.

Roger Helmer MEP

Ben Pile is a researcher who works with me and my colleagues on energy issues.  He was interested by my recent blog on the politics of shale gas, and came up with his own very interesting aperçu on the media coverage of the issue.  I thought I should share it with you.

He has been trying to compare the reaction of the media — and the BBC in particular — to the shale gas and wind farm campaigns respectively.

The BBC national coverage of anti-wind campaigns, he notes, has been all but silent, and fails to address the concerns of the campaigners themselves.  BBC local coverage reports the protests more accurately and fairly. It seems clear that a few hundred anti-fracking protesters from around the country can attract the attention of the national media, simply by making a very visual image — dressing up, banging drums, causing widespread…

Tax losses from wind turbine project already starting to add up

People will flee from the torture of the turbines.

abandoned expropriationManitoulin Expositor
NEMI has turned its back on a great potential tax base and a lifeline for the community: retiring Baby Boomers. We retired and moved to the Strawberry Channel in December 2011. Almost a year later, we found that 24 Northland Power Wind Turbines (the largest in Ontario: 422 feet high) will be built in our backyard. Had I known, I would not have looked at this area as a place to purchase our dream retirement home. Our retiring friends have now decided to look instead to Lake Nipissing. Another couple will settle in Parry Sound rather than live near wind turbines.

We are all retired from industrial areas like Espanola and Sudbury and our objective is to get away from industrial messes. I have been told that Northland Power will contribute a paltry $10,000/year to the tax base and possibly three long-term jobs. Our property taxes for 2013…

Health Effects Recognized in UK

Advertising Standards Authority says windfarms can’t be advertised as producing no health effects

In 2012 Scottish PowerRenewables claimed “There is no medical evidence to suggest that wind turbines affect health”. This claim appeared in the FAQ section of their web site promoting the Mynydd Mynyllod Windfarm in Wales. After a complaint to the ASA, and an investigation lasting more than nine months Scottish Power Renewables have assured the ASA that they will “make the basis for “make the basis for claims for health and wind farms clearer, claims for health and wind farms clearer, avoiding definitive claims”. avoiding definitive claims”.

At the time of writing Scottish Power appear to have removed the claim from their web site:
