Hayley Pegram of Overn Close said: “It is a good thins because not everyone wants big turbines near them. But if they are put in the right place they are fine, so it would be bad if this means fewer wind farms.”

Bernard Neil of Lillingstone Dayrell said: “They’re OK in the right place, I don’t know if the subsidy cut is good or bad, but it wouldn’t bother me if there was near me. You see them in France on holiday and they look alright.”

Irene Lee of Badgers Way said: “There are an awful lot of people in Britain and we are all energy hungry and we need viable forms of renewable energy, but if we can’t save the countryside we don’t have world worth saving.”

Anastasia Kavanagh from Church Street said: “I’m a believer in not wasting money and if it is not viable and won’t produce a good amount of energy for the out lay, it’s not worth it.”

Reva Cope of Moreton Road said: “I think done properly they work well, you see it all over France and they’re part of the back ground. They’re not intrusive, but I can understand those who have one next door.”

Matthew Shoesmith from Linden Village: “If it is the most cost effective renewable energy then views from a village are not my consideration. No one wants them on their doorstep but its about the greater good.”
