Mixed views on hotel wind turbine plans (Scarborough Evening News)

PLANS to install 16 wind turbines on the roof of a Scarborough hotel have received a mixed reaction.

The Crown Spa Hotel in Esplanade, which has previously won awards for its green initiatives, says the units would help it reduce its running costs, while decreasing its energy consumption and CO2 output.

Managing director Richard Frank said the scheme would help the hotel’s bid to reach renewable energy targets, bringing economic benefits through securing jobs and visitors to the area, and help raise awareness of climate change and renewable energy.

Scarborough Council has received a number of letters from members of the public in support of the proposal.

David Michael Ward, of Esplanade, said: “The proposed triple blade wind turbines are not in my opinion going to be an eyesore and look little more than a modern roof mounted tv aerial.”

Ray Springall, of Westbourne Park, said: “These wind turbines should be low in visual impact, should run in conjunction with the Solar panels and water reclamation projects the hotel has running and encourage other people to Green Energy production – we should all benefit.”

Alana Wood, of Redcliffe Road, said: “A company such as the Crown Spa should be praised for their high levels of commitment to making the world a greener place.”
