I object to such unfair grounds  

Credit:  www.thisissouthwales.co.uk 12 January 2011 ~~

Being a member of the protest group Save Mynydd Llanllwni, I am becoming increasingly tired of being told by various bodies on what grounds I can or can’t object on.

We can’t object to the objectionable noise, because it is within the guidelines as laid out by the wind farm industry, how fair is that?

This present application does not even specify the installation of the quietest turbines.

The anguish caused by the Alltwalis turbines shows a callous indifference to local residents.

These regulations were formulated 11 years ago for turbines of 27 metres, 100ft. I understand the turbines proposed for Mynydd Llanllwni are to be 127 metres.

We can’t object to chronic devaluation of our homes. We are told that no property is entitled to a view. Although there is spectacular one from our home and it is this same view that keeps our little holiday cottage busy and adds to the value of our home.

Most people, I am sure, would think it reasonable to object to what they find objectionable and to have it taken in by the authorities, to be told otherwise is in itself objectionable.

We have been given seven weeks to combat this evil proposal, RES have been six years getting this proposal together, 18 months of which we are told have been spent in consultation with the planning authorities.

If this proposal is refused, they have the right to appeal, if we lose, we have no right of appeal. How fair is that? What has happened to the democratic process? Countless lives have been lost protecting it, but when large sums of money are involved principles are cast aside.
