A Landmark Wind Turbine Bill
A landmark wind turbine bill has just about to go into committee stage in the House of Lords.
The bill ( See Here ) is intended to ensure a sensible distance (or set-back) is enforced to separate houses and wind turbines.
These are the distances in the Bill
If the height of the wind turbine generator is—
greater than 25m, but does not exceed 50m, - 1000m;
greater than 50m, but does not exceed 100m, - 1500m;
greater than 100m, but does not exceed 150m, - 2000m;
greater than 150m, - 3000m.
This is an very important bill. Even if it is the bloody House of Lords.
Furthermore this is going to get alot of people asking why this has not already been done. Especially when we have all clearly seen the distress these unprincipled carpet-bagging turbine developers have caused to people forced to live next to their monstrosities.
Questions are going to be asked as to why some councils ever approved the travesty of set backs of sometimes less than 300m.
It should now give councils everywhere pause for thought before approving the siting of these useless monsters close to peoples homes.
One would hope that this will give some legal redress to those folk who have been forced out of their homes by the inappropriate placing of turbines.
Do I hear blood curdling howls of joy from the no-win no-fee legal shyster's? Do I hear them revving their engines in a dash to file compensation claims?
This time Billothewisp won't be complaining too much.
