Turbine firm in new bid  

Credit:  /www.thisissouthwales.co.uk 2 March 2011 ~~

The wind farm company behind the failed bid for 19 turbines at Mynydd y Gwair, north of Swansea, has registered a fresh application.

RWE npower renewables wants to install an 80m wind mast for two years at the site to gather more data.

However, the application pre-dates last week’s appeal decision by Assembly- appointed inspector Stuart Wild.

He dismissed the appeal because of the potential harm it would cause to the local peat habitat.

Local campaigners celebrated the decision, and said Mynydd y Gwair was not for sale.
