A community could find itself living within a ‘wind farm by stealth’ if yet another planning application for a large turbine is granted, a local councillor said this week.
There is now only just over a week left for the public to comment on the latest proposal for the Llanteg area, which could see four turbines within just over a quarter of a mile of each other.
Two turbines are already up and running, with planning permission also being sought for a 62metre structure to the south of Crosslands Road, as well as the latest application, which is for a 45 metre structure.
“The closing date for the most recent application, on land to the north of Crosslands Road, is December 27th, so we are urging people to make their views known to the county council,” said Amroth Community Council member Stephen Phillips.
“We could end up with four turbines within 540 metres of each other, and no fewer than eight within 2,000 metres.
“We understand that both these latest appliations are to be considered by the county council’s planning committee, and the members need to be made aware that we are objecting. If these plans are passed, we will find ourselves ending up in the centre of a wind farm by stealth.
The turbines are on the highest ridge of land in Llanteg, and would be visible from as far afield as Castle Hill in Tenby.”
The closing date for observations on the latest proposal is December 27th.
