AM Byron Davies accuses wind farm developer of bungling

An Assembly Member has accused a wind farm developer of bungling an application for a temporary wind mast.

But RWE npower renewables said it had correctly followed planning inspectorate guidelines.

The energy company already has planning permission to build 16 turbines at Mynydd y Gwair, near Felindre, Swansea.

It wants to site a temporary mast to monitor wind speeds.

AM Byron Davies claimed the company’s planning notice for the mast did not include a map showing the exact location. Therefore, he said, residents and elected representatives could not make a true representation.

The Welsh Conservative AM alleged this was not the first mistake of its type, adding: “To make a true representation on the impact of the application it is essential to know the exact location.”

A planning inspectorate letter dated May 15 said the planning body had asked RWE to write to all the consultees again, enclosing a notice giving full application details and where documents, including maps can be viewed.

An RWE spokesman said: “We have worked alongside and been guided throughout this process by the planning inspectorate, and have complied with everything they’ve asked us to do, including advertising and displaying materials.”
