Wind Farm Protest Meeting
6:28pm 27th March 2014
Campaigners are warning that a new windfarm would change the countryside in north Cornwall.
Locals are chairing a meeting on Thursday evening over plans for 11 turbines at Week St Mary near Bude.
Campaigners say they will each be twice the height of Truro Cathedral and visible for 30 miles.
Richard Sowerby from Communities Against Rural Exploitation is worried about neaby solar panels too: "The concern really is that this will become a huge industrial scale proposal. I mean eleven turbines with all the infrastructure that goes with them is a massive project."
Good Energy says the proposed windfarm will generate power for 13'500 homes and they believe it's "an ideal site for a wind farm."
The developers say they have conducted a full Environmental Impact Assessment.
