Swindon advertiser: Honda will not appeal Wind turbine rejection

Swindon Advertiser today ran an article regarding Honda’s plans following the rejection of their Wind turbine application:

Honda have revealed they will not appeal against Swindon Council’s refusal to let them erect wind turbines at their South Marston plant.

In a statement, the car giant said they were still committed to their green plans but will not be taking the council’s rejection to an appeal.

A spokesman for the company said: “Honda and its partner Ecotricity still have complete confidence in the proposal, as proven by similar wind parks already working successfully at many other locations elsewhere in the UK.

“However, in making the final decision, Honda carefully considered the different views of Swindon residents, councillors, businesses and organisations.”

  1. Interesting a neutral villager told me when the planning application was turned down that Honda wouldn’t appeal. He reasoned that the Turbines were merely a smoke screen for the Solar Farm to go through under the radar so to speak.

    Perhaps he was right, who knows. 5 Megawatts of power is a huge amount.
