County Council Changes Wind Farm Policy

At today's County Council meeting the Cabinet decided to change it's position and no longer pursue wind famrs on its County Farms estate.  It is a position I absolutely endorse, despite the fact that it will cost the Council significant sums of money,not least because it is about putting people above money.

I spoke at the meeting about the fact that Fenland residents feel they have done enough in terms of generating Wind energy and that these developments would have a significant impact on the Fenland landscape (even if they wouldn't be strictly be located here).

The Liberal Democrats spoke in opposition to the change, wanting to impose more Wind Farms on Fenland and elsewhere, against the wishes of residents.  As I pointed out, their stance is neither Liberal nor Democratic.
