Public inquiry into wind farm plans gets underway  

A controversial public inquiry into future plans for renewable energy in Corwen is finally underway this week.

The public inquiry into proposals for a wind turbine development at Wern Ddu, Gwyddelwern, started on Monday at Denbigh Town Hall.

The move comes following two delays since the end of 2006, alleged due to illnesses to legal advocates on both sides.

Renewable energy company Tegni Cymru Cyf are appealing against Denbighshire County Council’s decision as the local planning authority to block permission for the construction of five turbines at Wern Ddu.

The developer has also issued a second appeal against the alleged failure of the county council to determine within the statutory 16-week period, planning permission for four turbines at the same site.

“The inquiry started at 10am at the Town Hall, Crown Square, Denbigh on Monday. It is scheduled to last for five days.

“Proceedings will continue at the town hall until May 3, and will be transferred to the Council Offices at Caledfryn, Smithfield Road, Denbigh for May 4,” a county council spokesman said.

“If the inquiry proceedings do not finish on the May 4 , they will continue at the town hall, starting at 2pm on May 8.”

The Wern Ddu site comes in the boundaries of the Welsh Assembly’s renewable energy document TAN8, which aims to increase the amount of renewable energy in Wales by 10 per cent in 2010.

The document estimated that 800MW of electricity could be obtained from onshore wind and 200MW from offshore wind.

TAN8 also takes in parts of Clocaenog Forest and Nantglyn, where 25 turbines are already operating at Tir Mostyn.
