The National Plan Slide 2 The National Plan NREAP Slide 3 The Planned progress of Renewable Energy (RE) to 2020 Detailed figures are shown in Appendix 1 Slide 4 The Planned progress of RE related to Consumption This is visibly a reasonable relationship Consumption from National Grid (Appendix 3) Slide 5 What is actually happening DECC RESTATS & REPD provide Progress reports and data Source: https://restats.decc.gov.uk/app/pub/repd/index/tab/progress/https://restats.decc.gov.uk/app/pub/repd/index/tab/progress/ This is the DECC chart of actual progress in Renewable Energy The actual rate is MUCH greater than the planned rate see App. 2.1 Note: 2013 is half year only. Slide 6 What is actually happening Source: https://restats.decc.gov.uk/app/reporting/decc/datasheethttps://restats.decc.gov.uk/app/reporting/decc/datasheet Exceeds maximum consumption without any other generation Slide 7 This is just Renewables Exceeds maximum consumption without any other generation Slide 8 This is just Renewables Exceeds maximum consumption without any other generation When the wind blows, actual Supply exceeds our Consumption. Do we switch off Nuclear so we can use more Wind? Do we switch off other Renewable Energy so we can use more wind? Slide 9 Progress in Northumberland Source: https://restats.decc.gov.uk/cms/planning-databasehttps://restats.decc.gov.uk/cms/planning-database Renewable Energy Already Approved in Northumberland Total over 757MW Slide 10 Progress in Northumberland Source: https://restats.decc.gov.uk/cms/planning-databasehttps://restats.decc.gov.uk/cms/planning-database Renewable Energy Already Approved in Northumberland Total over 757MW Consumption 172MW (1520GWh) Slide 11 Progress in Northumberland Wind Farms Now Approved in Northumberland Total over 326MW Source: https://restats.decc.gov.uk/cms/planning-databasehttps://restats.decc.gov.uk/cms/planning-database Renewable Energy Already Approved in Northumberland Total over 757MW Consumption 172MW (1520GWh) Slide 12 Progress in Northumberland Wind Farms Approved in Northumberland Total over 326MW Source: https://restats.decc.gov.uk/cms/planning-databasehttps://restats.decc.gov.uk/cms/planning-database Slide 13 Progress in Northumberland Wind Farms Approved in Northumberland Total over 326MW Source: https://restats.decc.gov.uk/cms/planning-databasehttps://restats.decc.gov.uk/cms/planning-database 238MW of this total were approved by Planning Inspectorate (PINS) and Ministers over-turning Northumberland and local decisions Slide 14 How We Compare Northumberland Totals over 326MW 238MW by PINS 25 Other Counties together TOTAL just 242MW Source: https://restats.decc.gov.uk/cms/planning-databasehttps://restats.decc.gov.uk/cms/planning-database Slide 15 How We Compare Northumberland Totals over 326MW 238MW by PINS 25 Other Counties together TOTAL just 242MW Source: https://restats.decc.gov.uk/cms/planning-databasehttps://restats.decc.gov.uk/cms/planning-database Slide 16 How We Compare Our countryside is one of the most precious things we have in Britain David Cameron 12/08/13 Daily Telegraph Article We would agree. Dunstanburgh Castle as it used to be Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty Slide 17 How We Compare I would never sanction something that might ruin our landscapes and scenery. David Cameron 12/08/13 Daily Telegraph Article Then who did? Or is this not your landscape? Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty Dunstanburgh Castle as it now is. Slide 18 How We Compare The Councils grounds and case for refusal: Dominance in the wider landscape affecting the Coast AONB. Harm to the Landscape Character Area. Would result in significant harm to some of the most important and cherished landscape in the North of England. Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty Dunstanburgh Castle as it now is. Slide 19 Why do we need more Wind farms? Is More Wind needed to keep the lights on? Is More needed to lower Carbon Emission and save the world? Slide 20 Is it to keep the lights on? National Grid gave us the answer in their Nov. 2012 Ten Year Statement. http://www.nationalgrid.com/uk/Electricity/ten-year-statement/current-elec-tys/ Slide 21 Is it to keep the lights on? NO! The plant margin is defined as the amount of generation capacity available over and above the level of peak demand. National Grid Ten Year Statement Nov. 2012 p28 This National Grid chart shows excess capacity above peak requirements. The Blue section denotes ALL planned wind generation at different wind strengths through to year 2032 Slide 22 Is it to keep the lights on? NO! The plant margin is defined as the amount of generation capacity available over and above the level of peak demand. National Grid Ten Year Statement Nov. 2012 p28 National Grid show that even when we are at our greatest consumption (the peak demand) all the predicted wind generation is within the Margin. When the wind is blowing we will have 70% EXCESS capacity. None of it is needed to meet even maximum consumption. Wind is NEVER needed to keep the lights on. Slide 23 Is it to save Carbon Emission? We have already seen the answer: Slide 24 Is it to save Carbon Emission? NO! How can extra wind farms save emissions if we already have to switch off other renewables in order to use wind? Exceeds maximum consumption without any other generation Slide 25 Is it worth ruining Landscape, Scenery and the Countryside? NO!

Courtesy of Windbyte.co.uk The Current Threats The proposed wind farms at Belford are much closer to Bamburgh and Lindisfarne than Middlemoor is to Dunstanburgh Slide 29 Dunstanburgh Castle Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty Local Implementation Northumberland An iconic Natural Northumberland Landscape Dunstanburgh Castle with The Cheviot as the backdrop Slide 30 Dunstanburgh Castle Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty The Society gave evidence at the Public Inquiry: The Wind Farm would be visible from Holy Island to Dunstanburgh, almost half of the AONB, dominating the landscape Local Implementation Northumberland Slide 31 Dunstanburgh Castle Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty The Society gave evidence at the Public Inquiry: The Wind Farm would be visible from Holy Island to Dunstanburgh, almost half of the AONB, dominating the landscape The Planning Inspector when talking about Dunstanburgh found: the wind farm would appear as a distant area of interest, amongst others, in the landscape.

We agree they are distant but industrial structures of that size ruin this Natural landscape and dominate the Historic setting. They are 6 miles away but still tower over Dunstanburgh and The Cheviot in the background. I would never sanction something that might ruin our landscapes and scenery.
