77m wind turbine height marker Blimp to be flown in Torridge!

Date for the diary! – Friday 4th April 2014  -9am-5pm.  We are delighted that Geoffrey Cox QC MP is coming along in the morning for the launch of the blimp.

CPRE Devon have arranged for a blimp to be flown at Langs Linhay, Shebbear EX21 5RQ at a height of 77m.    The area is facing another 2 x 77m wind turbines – one at Badworthy Farm, Shebbear and another nearby at Eastwood Farm, Peters Marland.  2 x 77m wind turbines have already been approved in very close proximity at Alscott Farm and Durpley Farm, but neither have yet been built, so its impossible for people to fully appreciate how high 77m actually is.    The balloon will be flown all day and everyone is welcome to come along. Please join us.
