You may be interested to know that an action group has been formed to oppose the building of a wind farm on Nocton Fen. A spokesperson for the group has provided the following for publication:
" An organisation has been formed initially of local people opposed to the development of the industrial scale wind farm being proposed by the Swedish company Vattenfall Ltd on Nocton Fen. The name of the action group is PNF with the message " Protect Nocton Fen......No Wind Turbines"
PNF have begun a programme of detailed work on each of the key criteria likely to be under examination as part of the planning process to demonstrate that the wind farm proposal at the location of Nocton Fen is inappropriate and planning consent should not be given. PNF would urge anyone, particularly residents of the surrounding villages (Nocton, Dunston, Potterhanworth, Bardney, Southrey etc), who feel they are able to support the campaign opposing the wind farm to become members of PNF.
A PNF website is currently under construction and should be live in the next few weeks through which people will be able to register support. We are also holding a PNF Group meeting to which people opposed to the wind farm are most welcome to attend:
Sunday 12th January 2014 at 1.30pm
White Horse Pub

The Campaign against Windfarms
This is a list of like-minded groups around the UK. The last update appears to have been 2 January 2012 so a number of these groups could now be obsolete.
