The Proposals Why We Object Science Economics Alternatives What To Do


The highly respected Royal Society of Edinburgh reported the results of their Energy Inquiry on 19 June 2006.

The Wandylaw planning application is yet to be submitted.

The Middlemoor planning application is now the subject of a notice, served by the Department of Trade & Industry on the applicant, demanding more information.

The notice is issued under Section 13 of the Electricity Works (Environmental Impact Assessment)(England and Wales) Regulations 2000 (SI 1927). This will mean that the application will be delayed until the applicant has supplied the information required to the DTI.

Once the applicant has supplied the information, it will go out to consultation again. We will keep this site up-to-date with any new information we receive.

Please send your objection to the DTI - you can find out how to do this by clicking on the WHAT TO DO button above.

Taller than any buildings in Britain

Northumberland is threatened by more than 400 wind turbines.

28 of them are planned for Middlemoor and Wandylaw, north of Alnwick on the A1.

More turbines are planned for sites near Belford and Eglingham.

These things are taller than any building in England, except the skyscrapers in London.

Stand on the Quayside. Look up at the High Level Bridge. Look in awe.

A 415ft wind turbine is 4 times higher than the High Level Bridge.

4 times bigger than Blyth's turbines

These structures would be 415 feet tall - about the same height as the top light on Chatton mast.

Or more than 6 times the height of the Angel of the North.

The wind turbines at Blyth are quarter the size of those proposed for this area.

The rotors span 300 feet. That's 90 foot longer than the wingspan of a 747 jumbo jet.

The blades' tips travel at the landing speed of the same jumbo jet.

Fast blades. High up. Visible from miles around.
