Victory for Slyers Lane campaigners

Great news. West Dorset District Council's development control committee today rejected the plan to erect six giant turbines on the outskirts of Dorchester. Councillors voted 6-3 against the application submitted by Broadview Energy.

Ian Gosling, who chairs the Slyers Lane campaign group said it was terrific news for Dorchester and West Dorset. And he thanked campaigners for many months of hard work and planning.

About us
No Slyers Lane Turbines is a group objecting to the development of six wind turbines just north of Dorchester, Dorset.

These industrial turbines will be 377ft tall and visible from as far away as Poole. They will tower over surrounding villages as well as the county town, and the iconic Poundbury development.

The wind farm is being proposed by private equity firm Broadview Energy.
