Annotation:
This article describes how wind power development in the United Kindgom (UK) has been hampered by difficulties in obtaining planning consent. Opposition to wind energy system siting and operation from local campaigns as well as national-level environmental organizations has focused on issues such as visual intrusion. Community or local cooperative ownership may prove a viable option for renewing interest in wind energy.
