Onshore Wind Farms

Thank you for contacting me about onshore wind farms.

Onshore wind is advantageous as it can help us gain energy independence as well as ensuring we meet our net-zero targets. I warmly welcome the growth of renewable energy over the last decade.

I support onshore windfarms but only on the basis that they are deployed in a sensitive way. I appreciate that not everybody finds onshore wind farms aesthetically pleasing and I believe community stakeholders should be consulted before planning applications are granted.

I am pleased that the Government’s Net Zero Strategy highlights the importance of wind technology to a low-cost net zero system and the need to increase locally supported onshore wind as we work towards a greener future. I am proud to be part of a Government that plans to leave the environment in a better state than we inherited it.

Thank you for contacting me.
