Experience of Davis Family of North Drove Bank, Spalding, written in 2009. It is important to note that the Davis family did not object to the wind farm in the planning stage as they did not believe there would be any issues for them.

In 2008 a Lincolnshire Valuation Tribunal acknowledged the Davis’ property had been devalued and reduced their Council Tax Banding. In 2011 the Davis family won an out of court settlement against the land owner and wind farm operators. Read about this here.

One thought on “Further Reading and Documents

  1. Hi we live on willow hall lane and planning has been put in for 5 turbines, closing on 15th August, yet there is hardly any action being taken to motivate others to object to this? These are still within Thorney , but it seems that as the gores farm and solar farms are pretty much dead in the water, people have lost interest in other proposals in the area. This is disappointing from those in immediate proximity to willow hall lane, who have supported the fight against all other proposals, such as French farm, America farm etc. yet the support is not returned for those here. When will objection letters be posted on here for willow hall, as the closing date is less than two weeks away?
