Post 400 ft wind turbines at Davidstow, Cornwall
contacted by Emma of STINC stop turbines in north cornwall on facebook here - this update means that there are conditions to the granting of the application - seems a lot to be addressed to me - any ideas?? I watched millions of starlings arrive this year, beautiful and awesome site - these turbines are by a reservoir, on a disused airfield between two villages - apart from anything else, blades shearing off are going to go where? its not isolated enough, most wind turbines have no houses near them especially that height - quote from STINC Facebook page - please support them if you can - I know we need Turbines, I worked on the planning app for the first one in Cornwall, so declare an interest but this is NOT in the right area and too high.

WHY IS THIS BEING PRESENTED AS A DONE DEAL???

At the meeting last Tuesday (13/10/09) the Davidstow Windfarm application was passed with 2 CONDITIONS:-

Satisfying the concerns from National Air Traffic Services

i) Potential for the... size of turbine to interfere with radar links creating false plots. (Long haul flights could be affected)

ii) Interference with Air Ground Voice Communication Systems.

Satisfying concerns From RSPB

Interference with the nesting sites of Golden Plover, Starlings and countless other wildlife.

WHY ARE COMMUNITY WINDFARM SO SURE THAT THEY CAN OVERTURN THE CONCERNS
WHEN INFORMATION FROM N.A.T.S ADVISES THAT THERE IS NO INDICATION AT PRESENT THAT A SOLUTION IS AVAILABLE (Information taken from the Public Information Pack page 78 Aviation)
