Lawrence Weston wind turbine success

Plans for a 130m wind turbine in Lawrence Weston have been approved. The structure is set to be built in the entrance to the Accolade Wine warehouse on the Avonmouth industrial estate. This is fantastic news and would not have happened without the strong support from the local community. Residents from Avonmouth area at the Make Sunday Special event last year showed overwhelming support, 96.2% of 53 residents surveyed were in favour, and similarly 97% of 130 Lawrence Weston residents surveyed at the Lawrence Weston Carnival 2016 also showed the same high level of support.
