This map, put together by the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE), shows the proliferation of wind turbines in Northern Devon compared to the rest of the county.
Penny Mills, the chair of the Torridge group of the CPRE, has compiled the map over several months by regularly checking the district council websites and adding the details each time an application is submitted, refused or withdrawn.
Mrs Mills said: “The map clearly shows the nub of the issue - the Torridge district in north west devon, is becoming saturated with wind turbine proposals - more than any other part of Devon.
“Not only is our landscape being destroyed, but now with the Atlantic Array of course our seascape is threatened too.”
She pointed out that with 52 permitted or operational single turbines in Torridge alone and with eight separate wind farms in the area as well as 25 turbines applications in the planning system at Torridge District Council the problem is becoming an increasing issue in the area.
Mrs Mills added: “'The situation has gone beyond ridiculous now in this part of Devon - it is a never ending onslaught of proposals for industrial scale turbines - noisy, industrial machines which will now start to dominate our once unspoilt rural landscape and destroy our tranquillity.
“I think the trouble is that many turbines which have been approved over the last year, have not yet been constructed, so people just cannot imagine the true size of them or the impact.
“How many more will we have to put up with?”
Last year the Journal reported how the former leader of Torridge District Council Councillor Barry Parsons was angry after finding a Devon County Council document designating Torridge as a prime site for wind turbines to be erected.
At the time Councillor Parsons, who is also a now a cabinet member of Devon County Council, said he had been trying to find out why the district has been increasingly bombarded with wind turbine applications in recent years.
He said: “I have been aware for some time that Torridge has been identified as a key area for renewable energy, namely wind turbines.
“I have been asking various people if they know why this is and then the answer arrived when the Devon Structure Plan was brought to my attention.”
The plan was created by Devon County Council in 2001 and adopted in 2004, and it will last until 2016.
Its “assessments of wind based energy potential diagram” shows where areas of search for wind-based energy production can take place.
This area covers Torridge compared to South Devon where there is no designation.
A year later Mr Parsons said he hasn’t had time to look into how the document was compiled but he added the proliferation of turbines has got to stop.
He said: “Mr real focus is we cannot allow this proliferation – people come here for the peace and quiet, they don’t’ want these things in their faces.
“I just want the government to put every effort into tidal energy as I think the country is really missing a trick here.
“In Torridge we have a least twice as many turbines as the rest of the county and it is not fair.”
