The results of the planning inquiry have arrived and the inspector has supported the plan to build 5 turbines on a field at the southern edge of Clacton. I spoke at the inquiry and the bulk of people there were local residents concerned that the view of turbines from their kitchen windows would be too much to bear! The planning inspector didn't agree. This takes us a very small step closer to the governments target for us of 10% electricity from renewables in our area by 2010 and 20% by 2020.
