The Yorkshire Wolds is currently under threat from the Wind Farm Industry. Applications to build major commercial developments are spreading across the Wolds at an alarming rate and threaten to devalue this valued landscape.
Here at the No to Wolds Wind Farm Group we already consider this area an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) but it has yet to be offically recognised as such. The Lincolnshire Wolds already benefits from this protection so why not the Yorkshire Wolds?
Please help us to protect this rural landscape by signing our e-petition below, you will also be registering to receive email updates form us, the area is a big part of our heritage and adds greatly to the local economy with the many visitors attracted, by doing so you will help to put an end to The War on The Wolds.
We the undersigned request that the Yorkshire Wolds is protected with an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) status to help prevent the current spread of unwanted commercial developments.

We are currently waging war against planning applications for 3 industrial sized wind turbines in the beautiful Great Wold Valley. There are currently 16 wind turbines either installed, approved or applied for. 2 of these applications are for so called 'Community Benefit' wind turbines. The group that has made the applications represents less than 3% of the community that they claim to represent. The majority of the community have not been consulted, nor informed about the applications, yet it is they who will suffer from the impact on the landscape of this area of High Landscape Value, the resulting noise pollution & the long term economic impact in terms of falling house prices & damage to tourism. There is only one motivation for these applications. Greed.

Yet again the Wolds & East Yorkshire is under threat of more turbines. We are told it is to achieve our green targets - these have already been met! When will people realize that the only winners are the wind farm owners & farmers who lease their land. The losers are consumers, and people who live near the monstrosities

Stand on Beverley Westwood to admire the view of the Minster and St Mary's ... instead of your eye admiring the beautiful skyline of the town it goes straight to the massive ugly bank of wind turbines behind ... all for greed of companies and land owners earning massive subsidies for something that doesn't even work. Come on David Hockney, you've highlighted the beauty of the wolds with your wonderful paintings ... now help us save the landscape.
