WIND FARM OF 12 TURBINES ON GIPSON

A plan to build a wind farm of 12 turbines on the island Gipsön, just outside the city of Landskrona, has been delayed. Planning permission has been granted, but the city council, which owns the island, has not yet signed the necessary land lease contract. Their foot shuffling has been caused by an architect's proposal to build holiday homes for German tourists on the island instead. In Landskrona this has caused a hot debate. Gipsön is an artificial island created by waste from a concrete factory and the city has gained a bad reputation from several environmental scandals during the last ten years. Now Landskrona has a chance improve its reputation -- as a community of the future committed to clean energy.
