Navitus Bay supporters welcome increase in funding to offshore wind farms – but opponents vow to fight on

Bournemouth Echo: PROPOSALS: Wind farm protestors gather outside the pier on Bournemouth Beach PROPOSALS: Wind farm protestors gather outside the pier on Bournemouth Beach

THE government's announcement that it will offer more funding to offshore wind farms has been welcomed by supporters of the Navitus Bay scheme.

Ministers have pledged to cut support for onshore wind and solar energy but give more backing to offshore schemes, like the Navitus Bay wind farm proposed for the Dorset coast.

But opponents say the move does not diminish their arguments against the plans and have promised to continue their fight.

The Navitus Bay scheme proposes siting up to 218 turbines in an area 8.89 miles from Swanage and 12.24 miles from Bournemouth.

Mike Unsworth, project director of Navitus Bay, said: “We welcome the government's ongoing support for offshore wind energy and its commitment to decarbonising our electricity sector.

“Offshore wind developments such as Navitus Bay will help the UK meet its carbon reduction targets, reduce our reliance on imported energy and boost the economy by creating tens of thousands of jobs.”

However, opponents fear the wind farm will industrialise the landscape, threaten the coast's World Heritage Status and hit the tourism economy.

Research carried out by Navitus revealed around a third of current visitors would be deterred from returning during the three-year construction phase and 14 per cent of visitors claim the loss of view would stop them coming back.

Conor Burns, MP for Bournemouth West, said he was “relaxed” about the government announcement because he said there was compelling evidence the Navitus Bay wind farm would have a detrimental impact on the area. I don't think for a second that it impacts on the arguments that we're going to make about why the proposal is too close and too potentially devastating for our local economy.”

And Philip Dewhurst, of the Poole and Christchurch Bays Association, said: “It’s hard to see how they could give any more money to this scheme, it is already going to receive enormous subsidies. But our concerns remain that it is too big, too close and not necessary.”

The silent majority have made it online,still only twelve I see, thought they may have roped in some unexpecting passing people to at least make it look like a serious protest.What is the one at the front doing? No arms crossed thank goodness carry on fellows :)

Those that say they will not return during the building and after are more than likely ones who go too different places each year and don't return to the same place year after year.
There are too many places in this world to keep returning to the same place like Bournemouth where there is nothing for visitors to do when it rains. At least when the wind farm is finished they could count them in the rain.
Get them built as soon as possible.

Even more money wasted on a vast subsidy for a system that guarantees....what exactly?

Continuity of electricity? No.

Saving the World from CO2 'pollution'? Well yes a very small % of our 3% CO2 output = you do the maths then tell the Chinese the bad news.

And: Look at Christopher Booker's article in the DT which reminds us how quickly the offshore equipment fails to deliver its forecast output.

Still madness, still no science to back it up.

You replace cheap fossil fuel energy with windmills, and what do you get, high energy bills. You kill many thousands of old people with hypothermia, but hey that does not matter, as we are saving the Planet and keeping Friends of the Earth(but not people) happy.

Until the Climate Change Act,, which is the driver for these useless windmills, is repealed we are all doomed!

I am all in favour of saving our planet if it were in distress but clearly it is not, at least not in any way that is outside an on-going and natural process.

The only thing that is in distress is a large part of the UK population struggling to pay their energy bill surcharges to fund this enormous 'green' scam - which benefits only a handful of rich people and of course the politicians.

Repeal the Climate Change Act, grow up and show some common sense, start fracking and end this whole 'green' con once and for all.

Some of our local anti-wind protesters ? If you have been following the comments over the past months you would have noticed the same names over and over again which would indicate that this "Twilight Twelve" in the photo are the total anti-wind protesters :)

Quite simple, there has been so much "hot air" about these fine structures that the curiosity effect will see tourists flock here, also as an amateur artist commented a couple of months back they will be a topic for drawing and painting so a tourist magnet indeed and Bournemouth can only benefit from them.As for any scientific proof as someone mentions there has been endless statistics quoted for and against these turbines all claiming authenticity so much so it has become so confusing to the general public,im not talking about those on here with political agendas etc,im talking about the people that matter and any hope of getting them onside have disappeared as they have adopted the attitude "let them get on with it" and before the usual suspects look up and say that I am speaking on behalf of others,yes I am ! the ones that I have spoken and do speak to in my particular area,thats real statistics not manipulated ones for any gain. Have a good day :)

For those who oppose the wind farm, where exactly would you like your nuclear power plant to be built? This is the alternative and I'm fairly sure they would all say "ooohhh we can't possibly have a power plant anywhere near here, it will be detrimental to this that and the other". Move with the times, get over it and get a life. I hope the plans are approved and building starts soon. I'm sure the opposers will be more than happy to power their homes with wind generated energy when the time comes, or are they going to sit in the dark out of protest. Having seen plenty of these wind farms in the north of England and Scotland, I think they look majestic and don't scar the landscape in any way shape or form, they create new habitats for marine life which will boost the local economy and tourist trade with additional people coming for fishing, diving etc etc.

I would beg to differ old chap. I would suggest that this planet of ours is more then in distress. At the moment it is dying. Look at the events in the Philippines, the floods in Italy and northern Europe and, closer to home, the storms in the north of England and Scotland last week. Now, whether this is man made or not is a different question but there is no doubt that the earth's climate is changing. We can either try and be proactive (although at this late stage not sure if the damage is salvageable) and try and do something about it by not contributing to Co2 emissions or we can sit around and carry on as nothing is happening and enjoy the consequences.
Personally, i would rather not look out at sea and have the view obstructed by windfarms. However, if then asked if I would prefer to be living next to a nuclear or coal powered fire station then my answer would be no.

I am sorry but you are talking absolute 'green' nonsense, what you refer to is simply good old fashioned weather, certainly not man made climate change nor even the remotest evidence of it. Study thousands of years of history and it proves that point beyond any reasonable doubt!

I have no problem with living near nuclear or coal power stations - at least they work!

I do note a touch of patronising sarcasm which I will put aside for now.You obviously have not followed the numerous debates/comments regarding these turbines or you would be well aware of the regulars opinions.There is one major benefit, that is an increase the amount of visitors to Bournemouth even if it is just out of curiosity to see what all the fuss is about,also as commented by an artist last week there will be many viewing these turbines and will capture their elegance in drawings and paintings. :)

"I have no problem living near nuclear or coal power stations", (muscliffman, above).

Would the other anti-wind protestors in the photo agree, I wonder?

Perhaps their placard should be altered to read "This wind farm is in the wrong place, we want a coal-fired power station here instead."
