Campaigners say windfarm will 'ruin' coast

Our spectacular coastline, our heritage, a unique marine habitat, will be ruined by this as well as the onshore work and the construction of a gigantic substation at Alverdiscott. No amount of money can compensate the devastation this will cause.

– Penny Mills, Chair of Torridge CPRE
