Wind power is most certainly a local issue. Councils have a big role to play with planning permission and there's often plenty of debate within local communities.
So make sure your council knows how important wind power is to you. Tell them why you like it and why you'd like to see it built in your area. We've written a template letter but feel free to personalise it and add in your own reasons.
If you live in a rural area, this is particularly important - more space for a turbine than in a city!
