Wind Energy/Planning

Working to cut subsidies for wind farms and limit onshore wind farms are one of Chris' main policy focuses. He has made numerous speeches in Parliament on the topic and organized a letter to the Prime Minister signed by over 100 MPs calling for drastic cuts in on-shore wind farm subsidies.  Chris has also worked to call attention to the problems created by wind farms for local residents including noise, visual intrusion and their effect on wildlife.  He is working with a number of local communities, helping them to fight both wind-farm proposals and giving local committees a greater say in their future.
