Plans for new windfarm

Plans for a new windfarm development near Nantglyn have been received by Denbighshire County Council’s planning department.

The county council has received an application for a 16 turbine windfarm on land east of Llyn Brenig.

The application has been submitted by Natural Power Consultants Ltd, acting as agents for Brenig Wind Limited.

Nantglyn residents have held a series of meetings over proposals for more windfarms around the village area.

Residents fear an increase in ‘noise disturbance’ for households surrounding the developments.

The proposed site is immediately to the west of the existing 25 turbine windfarm at Tir Mostyn, which was developed following permission by Welsh Assembly Government in 2002.

The height of the turbines would be a maximum of 100 metres from base to turbine tip.

Denbighshire County Council is carrying out wide consultations on the application, and is giving residents the opportunity to view and comment on it. Copies of the application are available for inspection at Denbigh Library and at the Planning Office, Caledfryn, Smithfield Road, Denbigh.

Anyone wishing to comment on the application should write to the Planning Office at the above address, no later than the June 22, quoting reference 26/2007/0565/PF.
