Stop Press! Saxon Windpower has announced it is abandoning its plans to build the
Wind Farm at St. James, and that Andrew Hadingham has withdrawn from the project.
The East Anglian Daily Times has more details in its article
"Controversial wind farm plan ditched"
Turbines are anything but a small problem. It is easy to underestimate
the scale of them. 100 metres may not sound like much, and it doesn't
take very long to walk, but 100 metres vertically is entirely another
matter. The diameter of the rotors on the proposed turbines is 80
metres, in comparison, a Boeing 747 "Jumbo"
Jet has a wing span of a mere 60 metres.

|What is VAITS?
|VAITS is a local group set up to rally support
against the proposed development of a Wind Turbine Farm near
St James, South Elmham in Suffolk.
|Are you against Wind Power?
|We are not against Wind Power itself although there are many
questions about its viability.
We do feel that more care and consideration must be taken about
the proposed sites, particularly for onshore Wind Farms.
|What can I do? / Can I help?
|We are currently gathering information and opinions
from around the country and around the world. We are interested
in hearing from anyone who has fought similar planning proposals.
If you have a Wind Farm near you we would like to hear from
