Company wins wind-farm appeal  

Gwyddelwern residents will be living under the shadow of wind turbines after a renewable energy company won a planning appeal.

Tegni Cymru Cyf has won an appeal to construct five turbines at Wern Ddu, on the outskirts of the village.

Wern Ddu is situated in the boundaries laid out in the Welsh Assembly’s TAN8 document, which aims to increase the amount of renewable energy in Wales by 10 per cent in 2010.

Last year the company appealed against Denbighshire County Council’s decision as the local planning authority to block permission for the planned wind farm.

A public inquiry into the issue was dogged by controversy after it was delayed twice after its announcement at the end of 2006, due to illness of legal advocates on both sides.

The inquiry finally got under way in May for six days at Denbigh Town Hall.

A Denbighshire County Council spokesman confirmed the planning inspector had allowed the appeal by Tegni Cymru Cyf.

“The appeal into the development of five wind turbines at Wern Ddu Gwyddelwern has been allowed by a planning inspector following a six-day inquiry in early May,” he said.

“The inspector, Stuart Wild, concluded that the scheme would make a useful contribution to meeting the targets for the generation of renewable energy by 2010 … and the harm that would result from the proposals would be outweighed by the benefit.

“The inspector imposed 29 conditions to mitigate against detailed concerns.”
