Yet more on the Atlantic Array
Looking out to sea, from Baggy Point, near Croyde, in North Devon.
We have uploaded a page today with more information about the Atlantic Array, including links to the developer's proposals, and press reports from both sides of the Bristol Channel.
Local newspapers in North Devon are already receiving numerous letters of concern about these proposals, and concern is mounting too across in Wales.
When the Fullabrook Down Wind farm was proposed there was much local opposition against it, but at the same time, there were also many members of the public who took little interest. Perhaps they had seen small turbines in Cornwall, perhaps they imagined the turbines would be somewhere up on the hills, out of sight. Now people understand how big modern turbines are, and they realise that 4oo (or more) giant turbines out at sea will not be an insignificant sight.
