Wind turbine buffer zone snubbed by Anglesey planners

A mile wide buffer zone to protect homes from giant turbines has been snubbed by planners – despite an 8,000 signature petition backing it.

Council officers on Anglesey have revealed their guidance report for island turbines after a proliferation of application for industrial size windmills.

They have rejected the calls from thousands of residents for an exclusion zone of 1.5km.

Instead they are pushing ahead with a sliding scale that would advise a separation distance 10 times the height of the proposed turbine.

But even with this they have removed the word “minimum” from the report to the fury of campaigners.

Planners have rejected large (over 20 metre) turbines from Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty – but say smaller windmills could be permitted.

Mairede Thomas, from Anglesey Against Wind Turbines, said the views of 8,000 residents on Anglesey has been ignored.

The full council will debate the proposals on Thursday.
