The Proposals Why We Object Science Economics Alternatives What To Do

- Berwick area

If you live in the Borough of Berwick-upon-Tweed, you need to know that:

  • There is a live planning application for 14 wind turbines at “Moorsyde” near Felkington, south west of Berwick.
  • Berwick-upon-Tweed Borough Council is considering this application right now.
  • If this application is approved, it could set a dangerous precedent for the other applications in the Borough.

Currently, there are 3 additional proposals in Berwick-upon-Tweed:

  • Toft Hill near Duddo / Norham with 12 turbines
  • Barmoor Ridge near Lowick / Ford & Etal with 10 turbines
  • Wandylaw between Alnwick and Belford with 10 turbines

- 46 x 400+ foot turbines

This would make a total of 46 turbines in Berwick.

Confusingly, though, the turbines proposed for Wanylaw would sit right next to the turbines proposed for Middlemoor. The two sites are on the district boundary.

So, if you live in Berwick-upon-Tweed, you should be objecting to the proposals at “Moorsyde” in the hope of persuading the Council to refuse the application there, and to dissuade the other developers.

You should also object to the proposals for Middlemoor. Although it is not in Berwick Borough, it is right on your doorstep. If Alnwick District Council approves the application, Berwick will find it very much more difficult to refuse applications in your Borough.
