GENERAL ELECTION: CONSTITUENCIES
Your Say Your Times
The unthinkable has happened, as Wiltshire Council considers, for the first time in this county, a planning application for a giant wind turbine, to be erected at Thoulstone, Chapmanslade (but which will also affect nearby Corsley and Upton Scudamore villages). This industrial monstrosity will be 87.5 metres (285 feet) high at the blade tips. For comparison, this might equate to a 28-storey skyscraper (except that skyscrapers are stationary) and will be an extremely tall, constantly-moving, desecration of the Wiltshire-Somerset border country, and will be seen for miles around. The calm, timeless nature of this area will be lost for ever. − Ian Welch, Heywood.‘Devastating’ turbine
At a recent meeting Wiltshire Councillor Jonathon Seed said it’s not what your council, can do for you, but it’s what you can do for your council. Bradford on Avon Lorry Watch, has been doing the council’s work for some time now, recording offenders who are breaking the law when they cross the town bridge which has a weight limit on it. − Cllr Terry Chivers, Whitley, MelkshamIt’s council’s job
