I agree with constituents who have written urging a minimum distance to be set between any new windfarm and residential areas. I have taken this up directly with the Minister, Charles Hendry. I have written to the department, and have asked the Minister in a meeting to change the law to enforce such a gap. He has not so far agreed to this proposal. In the meantime I urge our local Councils to use their planning powers to veto windfarms that are too close to homes, as Wokingham recently did.
