Make Yorkshire Wolds (AONB) e-Petition

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.

There are too many wind farms in East Yorkshire now.How can we stop more being built?

xxxxxxxx, Cottingham, East Riding of Yorkshire
we do not need these wind farms, we like many others are proud of Yorkshires natural beauty, the wolds is a very special place for all to enjoy. Please leave it alone so it's beauty can be passed to future generations.

The Wolds is such a beautiful area and should not be industrialised by large, dominant wind turbines or other unwanted commercial developments. It certainly should be protected as an A.O.N.B.

We love the Wolds, we're in the middle of finally selling-up in France and want to come home to Yorkshire. We're looking to settle in East Yorkshire. So, 2 of us object to the way East Yorkshire has been targeted. Off-shore is OK, but we feel strongly that tidal, not wind, power is the way to go. We've no vote as yet - but we will have! Good luck to all.

Notice the advocators of wind farms will never disclose the total end to end (lifecycle) cost of a turbine, because it is conveniently left out of all calculations. The power generated is questionable. The environmental impact is horrific.
