Concerns over wind farm go to Assembly  

Credit:  South Wales Evening Post, www.thisissouthwales.co.uk 29 February 2012 ~~

Safety concerns over the Mynydd y Betws wind farm are due to be taken to the Welsh Government today.

The 15-turbine development was thrown into doubt after archaeologists claimed they had found a 5,000-year-old neolithic “stone row” which crossed the site’s access road.

Work has continued, but further questions were raised by the discovery of a National Coal Board map appearing to show a four-foot floodwater dam in a mine underneath the mountain.

Carmarthen East and Dinefwr AM Rhodri Glyn Thomas said: “It is absolutely vital for members of the public, and most importantly the residents surrounding the mountain, to have confidence all possible safety concerns have been addressed.”
