A Local recently elected Tory Councillor Maria Edwards, of Severndale Farm, who is a Conservative representative for Tidenham Parish and a member of the Forest of Dean District Council Planning Committee, has made an opportunistic application for a Wind Turbine standing 337 feet above the River Severn, on Hanley Hill – between the A48 and the river opposite Hanley Farm Shop, which she also owns with her husband Lyndon Edwards.

A Community Group, of concerned residents and friends of the environment, has coalesced to oppose this industrialisation of this area of outstanding natural beauty, visible from many miles around, by the imposition of this monstrous moving and distracting eddifice, they are called:

The Community Against Severndale Wind Turbine Group

The ‘Effected Community’ being those contacted by the Council, originally who are directly effected. including those living within 1.5kms. of this monstrous moving tower.

Minded that it is a relatively sparsely populated rural area, where numerous properties on the overlooking slopes will be level with the blades and clear visibility will be from Aust, Littlehampton, Thornbury, Rockhampton, Hill, Oldbury, Berkeley, Sharpness and beyond as it stands 1/3rd. taller than Gloucester Cathedral, undisguised by trees or other obstacles.

There would seem to be few if any supporters of the imposition of this turbine from within the community – other than those who have signed standard letters provided and vigorously solicited, by the applicants, either as potential direct beneficiaries in the scheme, tenants or employees of the applicant!
