Welshpool pledge to keep fighting windfarms

Civic leaders in Welshpool have vowed to continue objecting to all windfarm applications which pass through the chamber because of issues over transporting turbine sections.

Welshpool Town Council claims that plans to transport wind turbine blades and towers through Welshpool will have a detrimental effect on the area.

At a meeting of the town council last night Robert Robinson, town clerk, said the authority had received another application for a 43-turbine windfarm near Llanbrynmair.

He said: “We need to keep on objecting to all windfarm applications. There are a lot of issues ongoing and these need to be ironed out before any windfarms can progress.”
