A £50M inducement to gain support for the Gwynt-y-Môr offshore windfarm was snubbed by councillors but members have given officers the go ahead to negotiate a better deal.
Npower renewables has stumped up the 50-year benefits package to offset any adverse impact the 230 turbine development would have on local communities – a move slammed by campaigners against the proposal.
Councillors received presentations from npower and opposition group Save Our Scenary (SOS) before debating the response to send to the department of Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform (BERR), who will make the final decision on the windfarm.
