MP’s powerful views on Wind Farms and Fracking

Tuesday, July 15th, 2014

Energy Technology Centre launch - June 2014Graham has this week set out his position on wind farms and fracking in East Yorkshire.

Graham said “The seemingly unstoppable march of wind farms scarring the beautiful landscape of Beverley & Holderness has led me to the view that the East Riding has now more than done its bit in hosting large-scale onshore wind. I think it’s important that we try to develop cleaner technologies, including onshore wind, but there is a limit to how many one area can be expected to host. That limit has now been passed in the East Riding and, unless a site carries local support and is approved by the Planning Committee, no more should be foisted upon us. I will be working with local colleagues to urge the Secretary of State to rein in the Inspectorate and bring unwanted applications to a halt.”  (more…)
