Welsh Assembly’s windfarm plans ‘are flawed’  

Credit:  Shropshire Star, www.shropshirestar.com 10 November 2010 ~~

A Mid Wales environmental campaigner has criticised the Welsh Assembly for its “flawed” plans to build dozens of windfarms in the area.

Peter Ogden, the Welshpool-based leader of the Campaign for the Protection of Rural Wales, said tackling the impact of climate change and reducing CO2 emissions was imperative.

But he criticised the Welsh Assembly for wanting to build industrial-scale windfarms in rural areas because he fears it could destroy the landscape.

Up to 550 wind turbines are set to be built across Powys in the coming years, which could take the total in the county to more than 700.
