Do you wish to protect Cornwall's landscape, residential amenity and tourism income? There are currently over 400 wind turbine applications before Cornwall Council. There will also be applications for large wind turbines on council owned farms. This petition requests Cornwall Council not to grant approval for wind turbines in the following specific cases:
1 Sites are within or close to an A.O.N.B. (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty)
2 Sites are within areas deemed important for tourism and Cornish business interests.
3 Sites are within specified minimum distances from residential property, as proposed in the current Wind Turbines (Minimum Distances from Residential Premises) Bill i.e.
Height up to 50 m - minimum distance 1 km (height measured base to tip)
Height up to 100 m - minimum distance 1.5 km
Height up to 150 m - minimum distance 2 km
Height above 150 m - minimum distance 3 km
Cornwall Council has been approached many times on these topics.
