I LIVE on the Bury side of two wind turbines. One day I came home and there they were, in the middle of a beautiful valley.
Now I’ve found out about a new monstrosity, I can’t believe it. I have spoken to many residents in the last couple of days and they can’t believe it either.
As for this turbine being quiet, actually it is as loud as a jet engine at its hub. The people who back on to it will be able to hear it, and it will be virtually impossible to sell their houses in
I do support green energy – indeed, I have some solar panels in a place where people can’t see them.
From what I understand, there isn’t even that much wind in the bottom of a valley, so why ruin the green belt and a nice view with ghastly useless wind turbines?
If they want to put them up, at least put them in a place where they will work properly, away from beautiful villages. You can even see them from Jumbles Reservoir.
Has the planner even been to Edgworth? This is a commercial turbine purely to exploit the feed in tariffs.
It seems that the boundary of the three councils Bury, Blackburn and Bolton have had a bit of a breakdown in communication.
