EAST RIDING: Beverley and Holderness MP Graham Stuart has asked the Ministry of Defence (MoD) to clarify its objections to small-scale wind turbines.
Mr Stuart said: "There are a number of small to medium-sized enterprises who want to put up a small turbine to meet their own energy needs but these developments are being blocked by the Ministry of Defence due to the possibility of interference to their new radar system at RAF Staxton Wold.
"This unexpected delay is jeopardising the viability of businesses in my constituency.
"I will be speaking personally to the minister Mark Francois to highlight my concerns."
But Steve Hey, of the No To Wolds Wind Farm Group, said: "Other small businesses don't get subsidies in these times of austerity.
"Since when has it been acceptable to request national defences are altered just so a few can benefit? The MoD know what they're doing – they don't object for no reason."
