Despite having been asked numerous times as to how it plans to get all the materials comprising more than 5,000 tonnes of concrete and 35,000 tonnes of aggregate to its proposed site, on the 14th December, Scottish Power Renewables have finally confirmed that they will send all these truck through Harvington and Leys Road.
In an very late, understated submission to Wychavon, Scottish Power Renewables, only confirmed their decision after an exchange of emails between Worcestershire County Council (The Highways Authority) and ScottishPower Renewables
Here is an Extract from the request:
14th December 2010
“I have read with interest that it is claimed that the route via Evesham Road / Leys Road has been selected as the preferred route. I was not aware of this being so and was still under the impression that both routes were being considered.”
Brian Sharp, Development Control Engineer, Worcestershire County Council
And ScottishPower Renewables Reply:
14th December 2010
“We have now decided that the Evesham Road / Leys Road option poses the least difficulties”
Kirsty Black, Assistant Project Manager, SCOTTISHPOWER RENEWABLES
Nearly 6 months after the submission of their application, finally they have made a decision.
So now Harvington and Leys Road could see more than 5,000 tonnes of concrete and 35,000 tonnes of aggregate passing through, with the return journeys, that means more than 5,000 trucks passing through this quiet village and residential area.
And yet – no consultation about this proposal to the people affected.
So what is driving Scottish Power?
Wind power… It’s green… It’s good… It reduces our dependency on foreign oil… That’s what the people of Meredith, in upstate New York first thought when a wind developer looked to supplement this farm town’s failing economy with a farm of their own — that of 40 industrial wind turbines. Attracted at first to the financial incentives, residents grow increasingly alarmed as they discover side effects they never dreamed of, as well as the potential for disturbing financial scams. With wind development growing rapidly at 39% annually in the US, WINDFALL is an eye-opener for anyone concerned about the future of renewable energy.
