AMIDST some 150 pages of documents submitted by McCains to build three wind turbines in Whittlesey, is this gem of gobbledegook that merits, I am sure you will agree, further dissemination and thought.
For we are asked to believe, under their site appraisal evaluation, that the site selected for the development "interfaces at many faces with local people." I'm sure it does.
"Physically the wind turbines are large, and they are placed on a slightly undulating open space," says the report, and thus far, well ok.
Wind turbines, we're told, "also interact with the visual amenity of the area," and, again, a view from which few could dissent.
You may also want to watch:
"There is always an element of subjectiveness about visual impacts, however, these turbines are grouped to minimise their horizon take-up and many people are comfortable with their presence."
And in case you're worried the view will NOT accord with your own outlook, be assured they can "be removed after 20 years, and their impacts are temporary, in contrast perhaps to a road which will be considered a permanent feature."

More, much more, of this can be found on FDC's website (planning reference F/YR07/0413) and I commend it to you, if only for more extensive insights into the thoughts of their consultants.
They also note, in case you need to know, that the "visual impact of a wind turbine diminishes rapidly with distance as perspective and other obstructions compete with the impact."
You couldn't make it up!
