Marr and Melton Wood Action Group

On Wednesday 27th September 2006, Banks Developments unveiled a plan to construct between four and seven 125m wind turbines on green-belt farm land opposite the village of Marr in South Yorkshire. This blog will chart the progress of the local movement as it fights to oppose the scheme.

Campaign for the Protection of Rural England

I spoke to the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) today and received some very good advice regards the planning process and current state of affairs with wind farm developments in the UK. CPRE remain neutral on the subject until they have been able to perform their own assessment for a specific site (which will happen in due course). They were aware of the Marr proposal and were knowledgeable about the area having been involved in a number of other schemes locally.

Lots of additional information on the CPRE web-site (added to links opposite).
