Wind farms only opposed by 10 per cent of people, Government claims

They are sharing advice on running local campaigns against wind farms after the Tory head of a larger cross party group of MPs opposed to the spread of onshore wind distributed a manual on how to fight proposals by developers.
Chris Heaton-Harris, a Conservative MP who is leading an informal cross party group opposing the spread of onshore wind farms said “dozens” of MPs were now formally registering objections to all wind farms proposed in their constituencies.
James Bethell, Director of Westbourne Communications, said: “What I’ve found from talking to the public is the thing that causes their strong negative feeling is… that long-term damage is being done to the visual environment for a frivolous, uneconomic reason.
“It’s the imposition of unnecessary wind farms in a lost or frivolous cause that engenders the most passionate opposition.”
Elsewhere in the DECC survey, the results showed the difficulties the Government faces in its attempts to establish electric vehicles as a genuine alternative to petrol-driven cars.
Only 4 per cent of respondents said that they have or are thinking about buying an electric car or van.
Of those surveyed, 53 per cent said they “haven't really thought about buying an electric car or van”.
