Davidstow wind farm reply

RENEWABLE ENERGY PROJECT COMPRISING OF THE ERECTION 20 WIND TURBINE GENERATORS, EACH WITH A MAXIMUM HEIGHT OF 126.5 METRES TOGETHER WITH ASSOCIATED ACCESS TRACKS, HARD STANDING AREAS, CONTROL AND SUBSTATION BUILDING, BORROW PITS, TWO METROLOGICAL MASTS AND TEMPORARY CONSTRUCTION COMPOUND ON LAND ADJACENT TO THE SOUTH WEST, DAVIDSTOW WOOD, DAVIDSTOW APPLICATION NO. 2008/01432/SK/IT.

Thank you for your email of the 7th February 2010; your support has been noted.

I would like to explain the current position. On 17th November 2009 the First Secretary of State exercised his powers under Article 14 of the Town and Country Planning (General Development Procedure) Order 1995, the First Secretary of State directed Cornwall Council not to grant permission on the application without special authorisation. This direction is issued to enable the Government Office to have a further period in which to consider the proposal and all available documentation. This does not mean that the application has been called in, but that one or more requests have been made to call-in the application, and that the Secretary of State is considering all requests.

We will contact you again in due course.

Yours sincerely

Mrs T Dickenson

From this it is, I think, apparent that one aspect being considered is the amount of support for the wind farm v. opposition.

I would therefore ask everyone reading this to distribute the sample letter (or similar) to your own local group and friends. This is a good opportunity to demonstrate that Transition is not just a talking shop, but that we are able to mount an effective action, where one is needed.

After all, sending an email may take max of 5 minutes. If we can't collectively manage a few hundred of those, what chance do we have of saving the world (or at least Cornwall)?

Paul Martin of TCN has come up with a new (to me) acronym: Pro Wind PIMBYs (Put In My Backyard). I am one of those and Davidstow is in my back yard (metaphorically speaking, actually about 4 miles from us).

Best wishes
