BRIDLINGTON’S most famous resident has submitted a statement opposing the proposal to construct nine wind turbines overlooking Bridlington Bay.

David Hockney has today (Friday November 30) delivered a submission to the public inquiry held at Bridlington Town Hall into the proposed Fraisthorpe wind farm development.

In the letter read out by Bridlington resident John Elsom, Mr Hockney said he “absolutely opposes the proposed new turbines” which he believes will “deface the landscape of Bridlington Bay.”

The public inquiry closed this afternoon, with representatives from East Riding of Yorkshire Council and TCI Renewables - the company behind the turbine plan - heading out to conduct site visits in the surrounding area.
