Wind check mast bid

Plans to site a 164 foot high wind speed monitoring mast at a Cynwyl Elfed farm, which could potentially lead to plans to build a wind farm, have been submitted to planners.

The application by David Anthony Thomas, of Fferm Nantygelli, consists of the temporary erection of a 50 metre anemometer mast for a period of 36 months.

The anemometer includes various instruments to monitor wind speed and direction.

The applicant, whose brother is employed by the council as a senior development control officer, has stated that the mast will be used to collect wind speed and direction data on the site.

Such masts are frequently used to determine whether sites are suitable for potential use as wind farms.

The application will be considered at a future date.
