An application for the erection of four 410ft wind turbines to be erected on Corrwg Fechan Mountain has been received by the planning department of Neath Port Talbot Council.Corrwg Fechan is in the heart of the village of Glyncorrwg, where there is great opposition to these highly visible monstrosities being sited.
As chairman of the Glyncorrwg Action Group, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the very many residents of the village who have written to the planning department objecting to this outrageous proposition.
Our group has not only the support of the local residents but of many ex-pats associated with Glyncorrwg. These people have also written to the authority objecting to the proposals. They have written from as far afield as Canada and Australia. Our local politicians Dr Hywel Francis MP and Dr Brian Gibbons AM have also supported our objections.
We’ve received letters of support from two members of the House of Lords. I have written to HRH the Prince of Wales and informed him of these developers gathering like vultures to prey on our little community.
If these turbines get off the ground, there is no doubt our house prices will fall. Our otherwise picturesque skyline will alter dramatically. Much of our rare wildlife will suffer.
Companies like ECO2, Gamesa and Airtricity should beware – we are not going to take these intrusions into our lives lightly. We will use every means at our disposal to thwart your plans.
