Tom welcomes Banks Renewables decision to withdraw application

Labour MP for Middlesbrough South and East Cleveland, Tom Blenkinsop, has today (11th August 2015) welcomed the decision by Banks Renewables to withdraw their planning application for a wind farm on Bank Field near Dunsdale.

Reacting to the news Tom said:
“I’m very pleased that Banks Renewables have made the decision to withdraw their application for a wind farm on Bank Field. It will come as a huge relief for local residents in Dunsdale Village, Mount Pleasant and north Guisborough who I have campaigned alongside in opposing this application.

“It was completely the wrong location for such a development and, I believe, only got so far due to the land being owned by an estate associated with a local aristocrat who allowed the development to even begin.

“Hopefully, this will be the end of the issue and local residents can now move on.”
