Oppose Middle Hill Wind Farm Development

560 Signatures Goal: 2,000

Middle Hill Renewables Ltd, a company owned by Air Farmers Ltd have proposed to erect nine 125 meter turbines on Middle Hill near the historic village of Elsdon in Northumberland. Made up of a group of London investors, this company is a speculative commercial venture with far more GREED credentials than GREEN ones! In fact, none of the shareholders has any realknowledge of or background in environmental or energy matters whatsoever. Middle Hill runs directly alongside the boundary of Northumberland National Park, alongside the bridleway of the Border Country Ride, is within 1km of the Grade II listed monument of Winter's Gibbet, will be a blot on the landscape from numerous vantage points (Billsmoor Park - A68 cycleway) and will totally dominate the skyline of Elsdon Village - in other words, it is simply an inappropriate industrial development in a unique and beautiful area. Help us fight this development by signing our petition below and together we may just save these "Far Horizons" for future generations.

    I was in Northumberland last weekend, cycling bridleways and quiet roads. I stopped at one point to admire the view. The only blight was a number of turbines situated towards the coast. Wind turbines are a scam. They're inefficient and just create an eyesore. I had a coffee at the cyclist's cafe in Elsdon and thought the view from outside was just magnificent. This development has got to be stopped.

    I was going to mover to Northumberland to get away from the wind turbines that are taking over the Scottish landscape. Now where do I go? No one needs wind turbines. They are the end product of one big scam aimed at providing tax payers' cash to land owners, energy companies and those on the receiving end of various brown envelopes. Wind energy relies on the UK weather. If you can't plan a picnic based on the British weather, how can you guarantee energy security with a load of windmills. Kick this and all wind farm developments into touch.

    Industrial wind turbines only provide part-time, intermittent, unreliable, weather-dependent, wildly uneven power unfit for the modern grid. Plus, they hurt property values and produce intense low frequency noise and infrasound that present a health risk to neighbors. More at www.noturbine.com.
