Wind Turbine Guidelines
Submitted by: bhsaccesscornwall 03 02 2013 12:08
The BHS has very clear guidelines in its leaflet on the siting turbines.See http://www.bhsaccesscornwall.org.uk/Wind%20Turbines.pdf
However the guidelines are not mandatory and planners seem reluctant to follow them. However Cornwall Council on the request of the BHS are updating their internal guidance and to potential developers to remind them of the guidelines and the implications for horses.

Many of such incidents do go unreported but with the seemingly uncontrolled proliferation of turbines, we do fear for the safety of riders and horses. It is therefore essential that all incidents are recorded else turbines will not be seen as a safety issue.
Please do report all riding accidents (or potentially serious incidents)on
www.horseaccidents.org.uk and/or to
