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.

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.

We had a wonderful run over the glorious golden wolds yesterday and the wind farms would ruin the beauty of the ancient, unspoilt countryside. I have a strong affinity with the area! My maiden name was Wharram!

Stop the farmers greed these wind farms produce little or nothing in terms of energy but have enhanced payments for Farmers who cannot think of a useful way to use land they think should provide a living for nothing.Wind farms are the easy option for land owners and how long before our landscape becomes infested with them as our towns are with wheelie bins.Farmers unite Straw burning power stations would be far better despite what the Greenie's may say steam turbine is the most efficient producer of electricity.
We would be grateful if you could let anyone know who may be interested in signing our e-petition by emailing them a link to this page, many thanks in advance.
