Dr Guy Vernham submission of 13 June 2021

PE1864/FFF - Increase the ability of communities to influence planning decisions for onshore windfarms

I wish to express my strong support for this petition submitted by Scotland against Spin. I live in a rural area which has seen considerable wind farm development in recent years and yet continues to be subject to further applications for yet more wind farms, larger turbines and extensions to existing wind farms. The detrimental impact on the landscape is inescapable and promised mitigations (notably native woodland planting) never materialises. There seems to be no limit to the desire of developers to build onshore wind farms. Faced with multiple applications from powerful, wealthy multinational corporations, local residents feel powerless and unable to effectively oppose developments. There is a feeling of resignation and that opposition is futile.

Communities deserve to be given a strong and effective voice in the planning approval process.
