Maidstone Greens are supporting the plan to site a wind turbine at East Farleigh. In a letter to Maidstone Borough Council they state that the model of community ownership being proposed for the turbine and the need for more wind power out weighs any concern about noise and visual impact.
Stuart Jeffery, Maidstone Green Party: "We welcome this application, this type of locally owned renewable power generation is exactly what we should be doing across the country.
"The country is facing an energy crisis and while the government continues to back damaging and unsustainable fossil fuel sources, it is great to see ideas such as the Castle Farm turbine being proposed. Dist Gen and Castle Farm should be congratulated for their forward thinking."
