Wind farm to be nuclear site? Just say no!

April 29, 2009 2:33 AM

A successful wind farm close to the Lake District national park is one of the sites recently approved by the UK government for a new generation of nuclear power plants.

The site at Kirksanton in Cumbria - home to the Haverigg turbines - was one of Britain's first wind farms and is also one of the most efficient.

The site's owners, local environmental groups and the British Wind Energy Association have spoken out at the lack of early consultation and the speed at which nuclear plants are moving through the planning process.
