STOPIT MEDDON

(Stop Turbine Onshore Proliferation In Torridge)

Email: info@stopitmeddon.co.uk

Campaign to stop five 107m high Wind Turbines Harbourcross, Meddon, North Devon.

 

** LATEST NEWS **

Updated 13/05/2014

This application is still Pending Consideration

Sorry I have no more news the waiting just seems to go on and on !!

NOW 4 years at least of the unknown.

The trees that surround part of the turbine site have now been harvested so it no longer

provides any cover for the turbines it will just make them even more visible for miles and

also gives no protection from the noise that will get carried on the wind spreading further.

 

 

Two more to worry about in the Meddon / Woolsery area !!

This one was refused but the developer is planning to appeal why can they just not accept its a NO!!!

Installation and operation of a single 500kW wind turbine with a hub height of 50m and tip height of 75m.

Middle Huddisford Woolfardisworthy Bideford Devon EX39 5QX

Ref. No: 1/0805/2013/FUL | Received: Thu 12 Sep 2013 | Validated: Mon 16 Sep 2013 | Status: Appeal Due

 

Installation and operation of a single 500kW wind turbine with a hub height of 50m and tip height of 77m.

Higher Fordmill Farm Woolsery Bideford Devon EX39 5RF

Ref. No: 1/0884/2013/FUL | Received: Thu 16 May 2013 | Validated: Thu 16 May 2013 | Status: Pending Consideration

 

Note the sizes of these two they are only farm turbines ! , they are the same size and bigger than the Bradworthy 3 at Stowford Cross.

Objections are needed for the 75m one as the other is just in scoping but Middle Huddisford went straight to Full Application

The Photo Montages are a Joke.

 

HARBOURCROSS

Wind Ventures have withdrawn the application for the five 126m high turbines as of 26/04/2103

A new application has now appeared on TDC website planning number 1/0412/2013/FULM for 5 X 107m turbines (a whole 19m smaller !!)

they will still be the biggest in the area.

The best guess is 67m Hub Height and 80m Diameter blades.

This is still a very big turbine only 8m smaller than fullabrook !!

 

Documents are now available to look at so go to the planning section of Torridge District Council were you can download them.

Some of the bigger docs are best downloaded using Google Chrome web browser as Internet Explorer sometimes has

problems downloading them.

This site layout has not really changed from the original.

Site Plan

Tower V Turbine

Big Ben Clock Tower 96m X 12m Versus Turbines 107m To Tip (Scaled as close as possible)

Torridge is still getting covered in turbines so please get ready to write a letter to Torridge

 

 

Picture showing all properties within 1.5Km radius of each of the five turbines will add more pins to most of the single properties when time permits.

Map shows positions of all known turbines taken from Council Planning Sites

We now have around 120 turbines working or in planning within a 15km radius of Bradworthy

(Total Visible on Map 417)

Key to Pin Colours is now on map.

If I have missed any or the status has changed please let me know

If you download the Google Addin Map (Turbine.KMZ) below you will get a better idea of what is happening.

I have grouped the turbines together in working , planning etc... so you can easily turn off different groups to aid viewing.

I will also carry on adding the planning numbers and location details onto each turbine pin.

Started adding Teignbridge , East Devon , South Hams.

I have added some 3D turbine models on the KMZ file

 

I know its not perfect but at least I am trying to show what is happening to DEVON !!!!

Right Click and "Save Target As" (KMZ File)

 

We already have Fullabrook residents complaining of not being able to sleep properly because of the constant noise, lets stop Meddon Plan now before it is to late.

They will not be happy till North Devon is covered in Turbines so be warned it may be Meddon now but trust me it will be your area Next.

This is a spreadsheet I try and keep updated with what it is roughly costing the electricity bill payers

of this country to subsidies wind power the total is now over £1 Billion !! just on the information I can gather from

BM Reports website and what the average price of one ROC is worth.

I suppose you could divide the total figure and work out how much each household pays?

I think there is around 26 Million households in the UK so that is £39 each household at a very rough guess.

I could be way off the mark but If you add solar as well?

Just added to Pictures section google 3d view of proposed turbine site.

 

Please keep checking site as we will add new content as and when available
