Public meeting in Tetney over wind turbines

A campaign is being launched to oppose a controversial new wind farm.

People in Tetney have reacted with fury at the development which, if passed, would include eight 115 metre turbines.

Local MP Sir Peter Tapsell has committed to attending a public meeting in the village on Saturday October 27 at 10am at Tetney Village Hall.

Campaigner Melvin Grosvenor is spearheading the protest.

He said: “This proposed wind farm will devastate the villages of Tetney and Humberston. It will cause huge problems at the historic conservation area Humberston Fitties.

“And as for holidaymakers wanting a peaceful time by the seaside at Thorpe Park Holiday Park they just will not realise what has hit them.

“This must be stopped.”

The owners of Thorpe Park are leisure giants Bourne Leisure. Over 300 local people are employed at the site and it’s estimated to generate £15m a year for the local economy.

The company, who own Butlin’s, Haven Holidays and Warner Leisure have pledged to fight the plan ‘tooth and nail.’

The planning application to East Lindsey District Council has been submitted by ASC Renewables.
