    As a volunteer job, I’m running a landscape protection hub website http://www.salt-homepage.org.uk - if your community is afflicted with wind turbine problems, please get in touch.

      Can I just say – I think Charles Paxton is great.

      I will be passing on the details of this website to a lady who is a friend of my mum’s a lives not to far away. She is trying to ready herself for the return for a third (?) time of the Newlands Windfarm Application and Cumwhinton near Carlilse http://www.againstnewlandswindfarm.co.uk/ – The residents have previously raised more than 21k via fundraising events to pay for the legal might to overturn chancers like these hoping to make a buck at the expense of residents and communities. I am appalled at the state of play with windfarms in the Cumbrian Landscape.

        Thanks very much Kate. I’m pleased to say that there are many good people stepping forward to prevent our region from being ruined. That’s a great community at Cumwhinton - they won’t roll over and wave the white flag.
        Our local residents are suffering the threat too with the Reagill and Sleagill scheme - http://www.carst.info
        Thankfully, our MP, Rory Stewart has taken a stand to preserve Eden landscape - see this week’s Herald for his column, it’s the best appraisal of the scenario yet made.

        We can use IT to help local environmental conservation.
