We have our public parish meeting on Tuesday (16th April) at Oulton Chapel at 8pm..  Please come if you can.  If not PLEASE make sure you register your view on the turbine via the ballot papers delivered through your doors.  Remember every adult is entitled to a vote so if you need more forms you can download one here.  You can email the completed ballot paper to or give it to a friend or neighbour to bring to the meeting.

Good news for campaigners at Scottow and Hempstead this week.  Unfortunately not at Bodham though - imagine it might not be all over quite yet though....

And on that note thought we'd share the front page of yesterday's North Norfolk News.

Thank you for all your support and copies of your letters of objection to the planners.  There is still time to get your letters in even though the initial deadline has passed.  So please, if you haven't written to formally object yet please do so as soon as you can.

And here's a copy of an objection we've passed onto BDC which we received from Gerhard Heilig, a WWII Veteran who served at Oulton:

Thank you for letting me have this info about the projected wind turbine at the former airfield of Oulton.
I understand the necessity of establishing sources of clean and renewable energy. However, this should be done with due regard to the environment and the agreement of local residents. There are enough localities, such as off-shore and out-of-the-way ones, where wind turbines can be placed without bothering anyone. Oulton is certainly not one of these.
The people of Oulton are proud and actively engaged in the history of their village. The former airfield is an important part of this and the memory of those who have served there and have given their lives in the cause of freedom is maintained and commemorated at the local memorial.
Oulton is no place for a wind turbine, it would be a blot on the environment and an insult to the feelings of the residents of Oulton.
Let my friends of Oulton free and find a less offensive home for the wind turbine.

Veteran of 214 Squadron who had served at Oulton.
