PRIME Minister Tony Blair is being urged to join the fight against plans for wind turbines in Denby Dale.
Local Kirklees Tory councillor Jim Dodds has written to him after hearing the PM had backed a similar fight in his own constituency of Sedgefield, Co Durham.
Mr Blair is reported to have successfully blocked the building of 250ft turbines within a mile of his home.
Clr Dodds said: "The Prime Minister has openly stated that `while he supports development of alternative sources of energy, they need to be in the correct place', and that `they shouldn't be situated near housing developments'.
"These are exactly the same arguments we are using to oppose the Denby Dale scheme," said Clr Dodds.
Conservative leader Michael Howard visited the proposed site last month and added his name to the protest.
Two giant turbines - each 400ft-high - are planned for a site in the Pool Hill area.
Clr Dodds said they would be the tallest in Britain and would be within 350 yards of houses.
He added: "I have written to Mr Blair asking him for his support because I am sick of hearing the counter-argument we are faced with about his Government's renewable energy policy.
"Is he either for or against these monstrosities? Or is it that he is only against them in his own back yard?"
Alpha Wind, the Danish company behind the plan, says turbines are good for the environment and make economic sense.
A pressure group, Residents Against Windfarms, is fighting the scheme. Leading campaigners include Lynda and Brian Lawrence.
Alpha Wind is carrying out tests on the site to determine wind speeds before a decision next March on whether to go ahead.
