Rory Stewart Champions Campaign for Minimum Distance of Wind Turbines

Rory Stewart, MP for Penrith and the Border, has said he will revive Lord Reay’s campaign to introduce a bill (Minimum Distance from Residential premises) to establish separation distances which increase as the height of turbines increases.

Sadly¬†Lord Reay died unexpectedly in 2013 before the bill could progress to the committee stage. Rory Stewart said “I would like to revive his campaign, and will do all I can to progress it both locally and within the House of Commons.”

Allerdale Borough Council have already adopted a minimum separation distance of 800m in their local plan but Rory would like to see a similar clause in all Local Plans across Cumbria. He said “we hope ultimately this modest reform would be enshrined in planning guidance throughout England.”
