Blimps flown in Ketton

Have your say

BLIMPS will be flown at two proposed wind turbine sites.

Rutland MP Alan Duncan has been contacted by REG Windpower which has said its decision to not put up the blimps in Ketton has been reversed.

Mr Duncan had written to the company to ask that the blimps were put up so that people in the village would have an idea of how high they will be.

The blimps will be flown at the two sites in the village today (Thursday).

Mr Duncan said: “I am pleased that REG have finally accepted my suggestion to fly a blimp.

“When I first made the request it was rejected out of hand by REG but now Ketton residents will be able to see for themselves the height of the turbines.

“I have always said that a blimp is the best way to understand the size and visual impact of the turbines and I am glad REG have now come around to my way of thinking.”
