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.

Enough is Enough. No industrialisation of the Countryside. Stop the march of the machines across our skies

another method of fudging EC numbers and making rich landowners with unbalanced & unwarranted subsidies..... Put the money into fusion research - it's the only potential true source of clean power for the future. If becoming an AONB is the only way for the Wolds to reduce the impact of this disease marching across the country - it needs to happen soon.

The proliferation of turbines is spoiling a location with great potential and aspirations for tourism. It should have been designated an AONB decades ago and now still can.

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
