Yes to Wind – Get Your Signs

West Dorset Pro Wind Group asked us if we could help spread the word about their new super positive pro wind signs and posters – we are happy to do so.  Words and image below from West Dorset Pro Wind:

Take this opportunity to show your support for Wind Energy

This is a critical time in Dorset with 3 proposals for windfarms at Slyers Lane, Blandford Hill and Tolpuddle being considered. Wouldn’t it be great if councillors and planning officers were to encounter these beautiful pro-wind posters as well as anti posters on their travels?

These posters will serve to remind us that surveys always show the majority are pro-wind.

We should not remain the silent majority!

Yes to Wind signs -ideal in the garden or on a fence. £4  – 60cm x 40cm,  same material as “House for Sale” signs and last months outdoors

Slyers Lane Wind Farm Proposal – Public Exhibition 22nd September

The Planning Application for a Wind Farm at Slyer’s Lane, nr Charminster, is going to planning in 1-2 weeks so public consultation will be starting around end of September.

The developer, Broadview, are holding their Final Public Exhibitions next Monday 22nd September at:

Charminster Village Hall: 1.00 – 3:30  DT2 9QL
Herrison Hall , Charlton Down: 5.30 – 8.00  DT2 9UA

They are going to have the visualisations (photomontages) plus their latest images showing what the wind farm will look like from several different sites.

Broadview are also bringing along documents and reports that are be submitted with their application for people to look at. Good chance to know what their final plans really are and a last chance to ask questions.

About the visualisations:

Everyone,whether for, against or undecided, realises that the wind turbines will be seen from some places. Broadview, to satisfy planning requirements for Landscape Assessments, have had to follow strict protocols in producing the visualisations and they have followed the Scottish Natural Heritage guidance. Thus coming to the exhibition is a chance to  get as accurate an idea of what the proposed Wind Turbines will look like in the landscape as can be produced professionally for the planners.

Broadview Energy`s online information (including visualisations) regarding Slyers Lane, can be found – Here

    "We are now nearing the end of the consultation process and its time for everyone who has a interest to go along to the exhibition, see what is being said and get the facts. I believe that for centuries we have used the wind for our food and for travel and it a natural resource that can bring so much good clean energy to our region. What we have to find is how to bring harmony to local communities for the good of all with WT projects. That’s what Keith and I shall be doing a few miles down the road in Pymore on the someday at 7.30pm where we shall be showing local residents what might be possible with a potential hydro project.
    We want to listen to everyones views and see if there is a consensus to moving forward. We don’t have all the answers, the project is embryonic but with good will and a desire we can achieve success. Why not try going to the Exhibition and Pymore for a truly Renewable evening experience. "
