Possible Corfu Offshore Wind Farm

Offshore Wind Farm - Corfu: Plans have been drawn and survey teams have been sent to Corfu's north coast for a possible offshore wind farm directly off the coast of San Stefanos. While Spain, Italy and Greece have taken steps to "Go Green" there has been considerable opposition from local communities, especially areas where tourism is the main source of income.

While the final decision has not been made on the future of the proposed Corfu wind farm, there have been several local organizations that have voiced opposition to the project. Their
website can be found here and their facebook page can be found here. In addition, there is also a petition people can sign on the groups main page and many tourists that have been coming to Corfu for years have already sign up.

Corfu Carbon Monoxide Posioning Trial

Twelve people went on trial on February 4 regarding the carbon monoxide poisoning of two British children at a luxury hotel in Corfu. Seven-year-old Christianne Shepherd and her 6-year-old brother Robert were found dead in October 2006 in their bungalow at the island’s Corcyra Beach Hotel. Their father, Neil Shepherd, and his partner Ruth-Emy Beatson were found unconscious but made a full recovery. Twelve people, including two British nationals who worked for the Thomas Cook tour operator, have been charged with negligent manslaughter and causing injury by negligence. Some also have been charged with violating building codes. The case was being heard in a misdemeanour court in Corfu.

Water Quality In Greece

The European Commission's (EEA) report on the quality of bathing waters in Greece, indicated that 97.7% complied with EU standards. More than 2,000 Greek beaches were tested as part of the survey. We are glad to hear that Corfu has passed with flying colors and we’re sure the quality will only get better with time and the wide spread expansion of sewer systems that are being completed all over Corfu.
