Jonathan Djanogly MP Supports the Cause!
ANTI-wind farm campaigners were this week backed by Huntingdon’s MP in their protest over eight proposed turbines on the former Graveley airfield.
Villagers from Graveley, Great Paxton, the Offords, Toseland and Yelling protested at a weekend exhibition by promoters npower Renewables at the Offords village hall, flying a hot air balloon at 417 feet (127 metres) – the height of each of the planned turbines.
MP Jonathan Djanogly told The Hunts Post afterwards: “Without doubt local people are very upset about the proposals. The impact on the communities would be enormous. On that basis alone I have a lot of sympathy with those who have lived in these communities and bought homes there.
“So I am allying myself with the objectors to these turbines, which would be taller than St Paul’s Cathedral. I don’t know why they can’t build them offshore, where there’s more wind.
