Mr Atkinson (one of the land owners involved in the original Shap wind farm proposals) has applied for 2 double-bladed turbines through agents, Universal Green Energy. Total height to tip of blade is 35 metres.

This is NOT small! PLEASE OBJECT.

As is common, this application has been made just before Christmas to make it less likely that people will find the application and object.

The location is just to the west of the M6, just north of Shap village, a few hundred yards from the cemetery.

You can object online via the http://eforms.eden.gov.uk/fastweb/detail.asp?AltRef=12/1029&submit1=View+current+applications (When you get to documents, the environmental statement has most information)

Or by post to quoting application 12/1029 to: Eden District Council Town Hall Penrith Cumbria CA11 7QF

If you know anyone else that could and would object, please pass this on!
