Stop Turbines On Peninsula

PROPOSED WIND Turbines OVERLOOKING CARTMEL VILLAGE
and Beautiful South Lakeland Peninsula

STOP Logo

 
 

 

The STOP Campaign has come into being to help inform the fight against the despoliation of the stunning landscapes of Northern England with the erection of WIND TURBINES across Fells and Dales. With a height of 125 Mtrs (410 Ft) to blade tips turbines overlook and dominate the beautiful views across the hills, valleys and coastlines of Cumbria, Lancashire and Yorkshire.


This STOP website is intended to support local communities affected and inform all interested parties who share our concern of the impact that these turbines will have, not just on a special local landscape but also on the environment and livelihoods of the entire area. We do want to ensure that the information that we present on this STOP site is accurate. We will use wherever possible Government statistics and quote all our sources. We don’t pretend to be anything other than partisan about this issue. We are not interested in compromise, meaning smaller or fewer Turbines.

We intend that as much of Lakeland avoids the fate of areas such as the Furness Peninsula where the proliferation of turbines continues apace with both new farms and the replacement of current turbines with the new generation of larger versions. (see MAPS & Cumbria under Siege).


These proposed turbines are a straightforward case of financial gain for the Developers and for the landowners. Many of us are in business and we understand profit. However, for those of us living close by, they will damage our landscape, our lives and the value of our homes. In short, they will damage our local communities whilst providing no effective contribution towards our country’s energy needs.

We encourage you to join our mailing list so that we can keep you better informed with regular email bulletins and breaking news as it happens. Don't worry we will not share your name or email address with anyone and we absolutely will not send you any junk mail.

Appreciate the Scale of what is being proposed

These photos give you just some idea as to the scale of construction in erecting the new generation of wind turbines. The turbine masts illustrated are smaller than those proposed for Ellerside and Stribers.

The picture of the hill top Cefn Croes development gives an indication as to the what will happen to the ridge line!
