Urgent- support needed today

The Strategic Planning Committee (of the Cornwall Council)is meeting on Monday 12th October ( the website says Tuesday) to decide on the three windfarms recently rejected by the local planning committee in North Cornwall . As we are keen on increasing the amount of wind energy in Cornwall, it would be great to send letters of support in time for the meeting. Please get as many as possible sent from all over Cornwall.

RE Davidstow Community Windfarm
Planning application No. 2008/01432

RE Otterham Windfarm
planning application no 2006/01274

Points to make plus your own thoughts

I believe it is essential that we reduce our carbon emissions and renewable energy has an important part to play in helping to combat climate change. As we approach Copenhagen and the all important worldwide negotiations on an agreement to stop climate change we hope that Cornwall will send a strong message of the importance of reducing CO2 emissions by saying yes to this windfarm.

The proposed windfarm will provide a significant contribution towards reaching Cornwall's renewable energy target of 93-108MW of installed power by 2010.

Wind farms are liked by locals and visitors alike and in many areas have been found to help the tourist trade. For example the Delabole visitor centre used to receive 30,000 visitors a year, dispelling any anxiety about damage to the tourist industry locally

Special notes for Davidstow

I believe that the site at Davidstow Woods is an ideal location for a windfarm due to the high wind speeds it receives and distance from properties. It will be an interesting and good feature in the landscape from Bodmin Moor and help show visitors and locals alike that we are
keen on greening our economy.

I therefore urge the Planning Committee to positively support this application

Special notes for Otterham
Although the site is close to the AONB, it would not be detrimental to its integrity as there is already a major power line of 400kV crossing the site. Hence the extra visual impact of a small number of turbines is minimal.

I therefore urge the Planning Committee to positively support this application

Please do this today!!!!!!
thanks
