Quotes

But Richard Drax, the Conservative MP for South Dorset, said: "It beggars belief that anyone ever thought of putting a wind farm of this size and complexity here, so close to shore. We know already that it will have far reaching repercussions, way beyond anything the developers’ environmental impact report has acknowledged. For example, it has been independently calculated that the construction, with its resulting sediment disturbance, will affect 5 million square metres of seabed."
He concluded the benefits of the homes "would be very considerably outweighed by the harm to the character and appearance of Bouskell Park, the Long Walk woodland and the footpaths" in the area
"There are other areas where they should be building first. I do not see why we should stop protesting and we will continue to fight till the very end."
