People who live in Glyncorrwg warmly welcome the reassurances from council leader Derek Vaughan that Neath Port Talbot Council strongly opposes the Assembly’s TAN8 policy.
The beautiful scenery of our area will be destroyed if the TAN8 proposals become a reality. We already have 16 industrial turbines at Ffynnon Oer above Abercregan and those should be our area’s share of the wind turbines needed for Wales. These are already a blot on the landscape and can be seen as far away as Swansea.
We support our MP Hywel Francis who is aiming to designate the Upper Afan Valley as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which should be protected from more industrial turbines being built.
The council should be praised for its work with Warm Wales, which has successfully improved energy efficiency in hundreds of homes through better insulation, improved gas heating systems and low-energy light bulbs. This is the way forward rather than ruining our beautiful landscape with ugly, expensive, inefficient noisy turbines.
