Turning off tourists
After reading your notice in the Gazette (October 24), I felt shocked and disappointed that they are allowing large wind turbines to be erected at East Knowstone.
This is the main road that welcomes all the holiday traffic into North Devon. What a sight to greet them – instead of beautiful open moorland that represents North Devon they will see large unsightly wind turbines.
This represents industry, North Devon’s main income is tourism. Almost the whole county relies upon it, so instead of building these they should be concentrating on improving the advertising to let the whole world know about our beautiful countryside.
This would then improve businesses and job prospects for the whole area. We should look after what we have got, not destroy it.
Out at sea there is plenty of wind, and currents – this is where the wind turbines should be built. By building them there it will not destroy homes and business and our countryside.
We want the tourism industry to grow in North Devon for all our visitors when they leave our area and go home to talk and say what a beautiful part of the world, untouched, full of beauty.
