Reacting to today’s High Court ruling against plans to build a wind farm on farmland at Barnwell Manor in Sudborough, Northamptonshire, Friends of the Earth’s Head of Campaigns Andrew Pendleton said:
“It’s understandable that changes to our much-loved green and pleasant land will often cause controversy, but the biggest threat by far – to people and nature - is climate change.
“It’s time to stop tilting at windmills – there are some locations where turbines shouldn’t be built, but if we want a clean and affordable energy future, we must find space for them in our landscape.”
