Stop the wind farm! Send an objection letter before the 6th November. Just use the template and send!

URGENT: Please send a letter objecting to the Mast.  This is necessary to start the wind farm process.  If 100 objections are sent we have an excellent chance of stopping this in its development stage!  The deadline is the 6th November 4pm.

Send it to:

Miss A McSherry; Peterborough City Council; Planning Services; Stuart House East Wing; St. John’s Street; Peterborough, PE1 5DD

Success for Uffington and Tallington campaign

Good news for residents of Uffington and Tallington as the application to build 2 wind turbines near them has been withdrawn (see for updates). This proves that a strong and vocal campaign against renewable energy proposals can make an impact.

We must take strength from this news and keep fighting.
