Wind farm plan rejected  

Credit:  By Emma Pengelly, www.walesonline.co.uk 10 November 2010 ~~

People power in Gilfach Goch scored a victory in the battle against the encirclement of the village by wind farms.

After listening to a passionate appeal from local residents, councillors went against Rhondda Cynon Taf Council’s officers recommendation and voted against RWE npower renewables’ application to extend the Fforch Nest wind farm with an additional seven wind turbines.

Npower already has permission to build four wind turbines on the site, which straddles the Rhondda Cynon Taf and Bridgend boundary, as Bridgend Council approved this application last year.
