Don't know if anyone saw the story in Mail On Sunday about shipping industry accusations that the government/local authorities had undertaken no consultation exercise whatsoever with interested/affected parties over the siting of the wind farm at Portland Harbour. Concerns were expressed over the potential danger of the wind machines to shipping radar and navigation, also the obstacle hazard in a busy shipping lane etc..etc.. It was hinted that the local authority had a hidden agenda in its attempts to attract commercial interests into the harbour area, but no mention was made of the diving ban. Seems many of the locals aren't too happy either. Certain to rumble on.
