Turbine plan for water firm on hold  

Credit:  Carmarthen Journal, www.thisissouthwales.co.uk 11 January 2012 ~~

Plans by a well-known mineral water company to site two 284ft wind turbines on land near Tavernspite, due to be considered yesterday, have been put on hold.

The application, by Princes Gate Spring Water is for two 86.5 metre turbine which would generate 800 kilowatts of electricity each.

Plans for the site, on the back road from Templeton to Tavernspite, also include access track and underground cabling.

Among the objections raised are impact on the local landscape and on local historic landmarks; Middleton Top and Castell Meherin.

It is also felt the development would add to the visual impact of other windfarms, such as the smaller turbines at Pendine.

A Pembrokeshire Council spokesman said the reason for the withdrawal of the application was the late submission of a consultation response from a statutory consultee, the Dyfed Archaeological Trust.

The planning application will be considered at a later date.

One of the objectors is the local branch of the Campaign for the Protection of Rural Wales (CPRW), who previously said: “These two turbines – larger than any yet built in the county or those at Pendine – are situated in open farmland on a prominent ridge which is the highest point in south Pembrokeshire.”
