Council updated over Clocaenog Forest windfarm plan  

Credit:  by David Powell, DPW West, www.dailypost.co.uk 8 September 2011 ~~

A new windfarm with 32 turbines could move a step closer to getting the go ahead at a meeting next week.

Developer RWE NPower Renewables is applying for permission to build the site within Clocaenog Forest.

Officers from Conwy County Borough Council and Denbighshire County Council are working together on the scheme.

Conwy’s planning committee will be updated about the plans on Wednesday, September 14 at Bodlondeb at 2pm.

The details indicated in the present draft proposal are for a much larger area of land and a greater number of turbines than previously seen in the counties. Turbine would be at least 25 metres higher to the tip than the highest already granted.

But also they would be approximately 75 metres higher to the tip – or equivalent to double the height of the existing turbines at Tir Mostyn in Denbighshire.
