Duddo Five Stones (Stone Circle) — News

Duddo Stones still threatened

The Duddo Stones are still threatened by wind turbine speculators.

We have 2 schemes which have been refused by the planning authority because of the damage to the setting of the Stones, but which are being appealed.

One, for a 74m turbine to the north of the Stones, was unanimously refused on the advice of planners and heritage experts. But a planning inspector approved it at appeal.

Local people recently (June, 2014) took a huge financial risk, going to the High Court to get this approval overturned.

We now face this being re-determined, together with an appeal on the refusal of two 34.5m turbines, which were also refused because of their impact on the setting of the Stones.

You can help. See 'Guardians of the Stones'on the Duddo community website.
