TV presenter Iolo Williams says ‘sign the petition’  

Credit:  Published date: 13 May 2013 | Published by: Dominic Robertson | County Times | www.countytimes.co.uk ~~

Welsh wildlife presenter Iolo Williams is urging people to sign up to the County Times petition against mass windfarm development in Powys.

Iolo, who lives in Llandyssil and is known for presenting wild life programmes on television, said people should back the campaign to prevent the desecration of Mid Wales.

He said: “People say windfarms are green but they are not in any way, they desecrate our landscape, divide communities and then people find that when you have them you need substations and pylons to connect them to the national grid. All of these issues come with them.

“The Welsh countryside is a far poorer place with windfarms and that’s why it is vitally important people sign this petition.

“It’s the voice of rural Wales. Without this we won’t have a voice and they will steamroller over us. This petition will make it crystal clear that we don’t want windfarms anywhere near the Welsh landscape.”

The ‘Stop This Power Madness’ petition, launched by the County Times, could be your final chance to make your voice heard. It will be presented to the planning inspector in charge of the public inquiry, opening at the Royal Oak in Welshpool on June 4, by the barrister acting on behalf of The Alliance, an organisation made up of more than 20 regional protest groups throughout Powys, Shropshire and Ceredigion.

Sign up to the Power Mad protest petition either on page 32 of this week’s newspaper or by downloading a copy of the petition on our webpage, right.
