We hope you all have had a good Autumn. Below is a summary of our latest news. For more detail, please read the newsletter.
- We are pleased to announce that Lord Patrick Cormack has formally accepted our invitation to become President of PNF to assist us in our fight against the proposed Nocton Fen Wind Farm. We are also pleased to announce that Robin Battle whose family farm land adjacent to the wind farm site has formally accepted our invitation to become Vice President of PNF.
- People registered with Vattenfall will have received their Feedback Report Two published after the public exhibitions in June 2014. On 21 October 2014 Vattenfall issued an email Newsletter announcing that the number of turbines are now to be reduced from 23 to 20 with the turbine height remaining at 149.5m (490ft).
- To date a few individuals have kindly made contributions to the PNF fighting fund which has been spent mainly on paper and printing of leaflets, signs and presentation materials. We are reaching the stage that costs are inevitably rising as we seek to send out more advertising material and look to supplement our “in house” technical expertise with specific professional advisors. We have now established a Community Bank account and attached is a donation slip in the hope that people will financially support PNF. Without raising significant funding to raise public awareness and support to fight the Vattenfall planning application it will be difficult to effectively campaign against the wind farm. Financial support no matter how small will be gratefully received.
- We have produced an information sheet detailing how this development will impact the local and wider community. Please feel free to distribute copies of this sheet to spread the word about this development.
