Most people like wind farms

In the High Court a judge said that the strategic need over-rode the visual impact of the Fullabrook wind farm near Barnstaple. Ecotricity and the majority of residents in Berkeley Vale near Stroud wish that their local council had heard about this decision – albeit made in 2009.
Were they influenced by misleading photo montages put out by the ‘antis’?

We (Team Treehugger) reported a few months back on how residents of one UK community seemed to be actively welcoming a new wind development. There was, of course, a vocal opposition group to the proposed wind park but—if surveys were to be believed—NIMBYs were in a minority, and a majority of residents in the area actually thought more wind power was a good idea. Nevertheless, developer Ecotricity brings us news that the planning application for their wind power installation in Berkeley Vale near Stroud, Gloucestershire was turned down due to "visual impact". Ironically, this was closely followed by the anti-wind farm group "Save Berkeley Vale" being ordered by the Advertising Standards Agency to stop using misleading images of wind turbines that exaggerated the potential impact of the installation and even placed turbines in the wrong location to over emphasize the spread of the plant.

Apparently you can’t trust everything you see these days...
