Onshore wind has rigorous application process: Davey
Every application for a new onshore windfarm is considered "on its merits", energy and climate change secretary Ed Davey said on Wednesday 24 October. The statement came in response to an e-petition from opponents of the resource. Davey said developers were required to carry out a "rigorous" analysis of the impact their projects would have on the local environment, and applications were often rejected on this basis. Davey also denied suggestions wind turbines had a negative impact on tourism, and noted the UK's first commercial windfarm at Delabole in Cornwall had received 350,000 visitors.
