Dear subscribers
when i saw the mail below and clicked on the link it led
me to an anti wind farm site or at least for Northumberland.

Does TLIO have a poisition on this?
For me I think wind power is important and we need more of it , however I 
dont want to see it to in the hands of large companies, rather at community 
level as part of a decentralised power grid.. enough scale to be 'feasible' 
(they are often futile to have just 1 on a house) but not huge installations 
if they disrupt ecology etc (as appears to be the case on Lewis). Could be a 
good subject for the Land magazine.

But the links below did seem a a bit to lead to the usual suspects... 
quoting from Savills and fretting about house prices!


With thanks
