Local Objections - making your voice heard locally

"Dear All,

Following on from Vattenfall's open public events, we now move into a period where Vattenfall will finalise their application before submission in the first  part of 2016.  Though the Government will remove subsidies from new onshore wind farms, Vattenfall are very clear that they will press ahead with this application.

This is also the period where we need to start making our objections known. PNF took an exit poll at all public events (Nocton, Potterhanworth, Bardney, Metheringham, Dunston and Branston), and the results were very conclusive. Of 423 people asked as they left the events and who gave an answer, 84% were against the wind farm, 6% for and the rest were undecided (10%). So amongst the local community, it is very clear the this development is not wanted.

However, we have heard that some Parish Councils have not been contacted with the views of by their parishioners. At this first stage, it is important that the Parish Councils are aware of your objections from their parishioners, so we ask that as many people write to the Parish Councils via the Clerks to voice their objections.
This is only the first stage of objections, but it is an important one.  We will be writing to you later in the year to detail how else we can object.

Best wishes,

Stephen Phillips QC MP

'To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, with reference to the Written Statement of 18 June 2015, HC WS40, whether her Department plans to offer support under the enewables Obligation to the proposed Nocton Fen wind farm.'
