Windfarms pending  

Two windfarms in rural Denbighshire, totalling 29 turbines, look set to be given the go-ahead tomorrow.

Plans for the two latest windfarms in North Wales will be discussed at a meeting of Denbighshire’s planning committee.

Despite strong objection from some parties, councillors are being urged to accept both proposals.

A plan by Brenig Wind Limited would see 16 turbines up to 100m tall being built on land east of Llyn Brenig.

Meanwhile, 13 wind turbines, up to 125m tall, could be built by Tegni Cymru Cyf at Gorsedd Bran near Nantglyn.

The community councils of Nantglyn, Llanrhaeadr yn Nghinmeirch, Cyffylliog, Derwen and Clocaenog all objected to the schemes, which are close to the 25-turbine Tir Mostyn windfarm. Nantglyn Community Council said about both plans: “A number of people are already impacted by noise from the existing Tir Mostyn development.

“Even those who are not so impacted are concerned lest the cumulative impact of two more developments tip the balance.”

The Llyn Brenig application was supported in 166 letters, with 52 people writing to object.

Meanwhile, three people expressed support by letter for the Gorsedd Bran application, with 45 objecting.

Comments from a Denbighshire planning officer relating to the latter say: “Whilst acknowledging the basis of concerns over aspects of the development, experience from previous applications and appeals suggest specific impacts…can be mitigated.”

Another application, for ten turbines at Melin-y-Wig in Denbighshire, is pending.
