Plans for a wind farm near Pencader have been approved by Carmarthenshire County Councillors.
The planning committee today granted permission for 10 wind turbines on land adjacent to Blaengwen Farm, Pencader.
A previous application by the same developer, Catamount Cymru, was turned down by the committee last November. Officers had recommended approval.
Council head of planning Eifion Bowen said that the council was working within the framework of the Unitary Development Plan and the Assembly guidance on planning for renewable energy.
He said that the new application included habitat improvements to be achieved through agreement to implement a habitat management plan. He recommended approval.
