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.

windfarms locations need to be considered carefully to have minimum impact on local environment. Sensitivity to the impact on tourism in an area of economic disadvantage reliant on tourism has to be a priority

Met tourists from Canada walking the Wolds Way to experience the 'spectacular views across the river Ouse and Trent and the Vale of York' promised in the guidebook 'Yorkshire Wolds and Beyond' They were shocked to find so many wind turbines and wind farms blighting the view from the Sancton/North Newbald/Market Weighton section of the Wolds Way. They have written to the national trails officer to express their disappointment
