AFTER reading the story in The Crow (April 10) on the proposed wind turbines, I feel I had to write to give Cllr Paul Grimes support.
He was the only councillor to talk some sense.
Yes, wind turbines can and do look majestic. I have travelled England and Europe passing wind turbines along motorways and coastal areas. Each time I see them it lifts my heart.
As I feel as a whole we are trying to create a better future and keep our earth alive for further generations.
I would be proud to see wind turbines in our area. I believe it would be a beautiful view from the A505 and Therfield Heath. Imagine the wonderful photographs when the kite festival comes to town.
I give my full support and hope all other local residents do also.
As for the remarks of the other councillors.
Cllr Marguerite Phillips doesn't think the area is right for wind turbines and is worried that the land will be turned into a concrete industrial site.
Cllr Rod Kennedy says it would be disatrous on the environment and Cllr Bill Prime says it would be "a blot on the landscape".
How they made me laugh. They didn't stop to think about the ever-expanding concrete industrial development at Johnson Matthey we have all had to look at for the past 25 years or more.
This is less than a stone's throw away from the proposed view the wind turbines will be having a "major impact" on.
Those councillors can enjoy the view of Johnson Matthey from the heath. I'll sit with Cllr Grimes enjoying the beautiful "majestic" view of the wind turbines.
