We have been warning about this. Now it looks like it is going to happen. Renewable energy supplies are so unreliable that you might need to pay even more on top of the subsidy you already pay to have a reliable supply.
This is just a short note to say thanks to you for writing in to W.D.B.C. to oppose the wind turbine application at Cardwell Farm. Without your help and support the result could have been very different. As a small hamlet we had to rely on your support and you came through; all of us are grateful to you for taking the time and effort to do this.
It goes to show that working together we can achieve things and with organisations like SALTAG to help us along we can be a force to be reckoned with. Our thanks to you all once again and if friends and family wrote in but do not look at the MABRAKE or SALTAG site please pass our thanks to them too.
A full planning application for a wind turbine at Cardwell Farm, Longcross, has now been submitted to West Devon Borough Council by Mr P Alford and a company from Birmingham called Planex.
We need everyone who is against this proposal to write, email or object online to the above address for West Devon Borough Council. The proposer P Alford has had a lot of support from his relatives and friends so we desperately need your objections.
We have helped support all your other turbine objections so please help us.
All objections have to be lodged by 26th June at the latest when submissions close.
We are also holding our own fundraising, information, cheese and wine evening on
Friday 26th June 7.30pm at The Old Chapel so please come along and support us.
Funds will be used for ink, paper, letters, postage and printing of special maps etc.
There will be a charge of £5.00 for the cheese and biscuits but we will throw in an
alcoholic drink for free, (bargain time). There will be a raffle as well at £1.00 a strip of 5 tickets.
However, if you cannot be at the fundraising evening can we also take this
opportunity to ask for donations, however small because we are a very tiny community here at Longcross and the cost of printing, ink, photo montages are expensive and we need your help and support so any donation to Andy Harrap at the Old Chapel address would be appreciated.
