Wind farm row grows

Up to 1,000 leaflets have been delivered to homes by campaigners battling to stop the region's first wind farm being located in Cannock Chase.

Keith Faulkner, whose home in Littleworth Road backs on to the land, said today: "We have distributed around 800-1,000 leaflets and still have more to do because we want to cover the perimeter of the site.

"We've had numerous phone calls from people who are concerned and a lot of people who we have spoken to are unsure of where exactly Bleak House is."

The leaflet that has been distributed invites residents to a meeting on Wednesday that has been called by protesters at the village's Constitutional Club.

Leaflets sent out by the Wimblebury and Rawnsley Against Wind Farms group, list concerns about the proposal by Harworth Power, part of UK Coal, and has space for people to make any points of their own.

The company is waiting on a reply from the Civil Aviation Authority over concerns the turbines may interfere with Birmingham Airport's flight path.

Harworth can in the meantime put up an anemometer mast to monitor wind speeds.
