MP Welcomes Debate over Wind Power
Sandra Osborne MP today said that she was delighted that the windfarm debate was being brought to the heart of her constituency with a well attended conference on wind power which was held today (Friday 11 Nov 2011) at Ayr Racecourse.
‘I am delighted that Ayr has been able to host this important conference and I am pleased that it was so well attended. Credit must be given to Communities Against Turbines (CATs) who organised this conference.
‘My message to the Government today following the conference is that wider debate must take place in order to inform a sensible and comprehensive policy on windfarms. The position must take account of the available evidence while at the same time commissioning further substantial research. It is also vital that the views of local communities and residents living close to wind turbines are taken into account as part of the process’.
