140 object to plan for giant wind turbine  

Credit:  Carmarthen Journal | May 22, 2013 | www.thisissouthwales.co.uk ~~

More than 140 people have objected to plans for a 77-metre wind turbine on land north of Lampeter.

Residents in Creuddyn Bridge claim the turbine will be an eyesore and fear it may be the first of several in the area.

It will also be visible from Felinfach, Temple Bar, Talsarn and as far as Llanybydder.

A planning application for the turbine has been received by Ceredigion Council by London-based renewable energy firm Livos Energy on land owned by the Parry family.

Judith and Chris Bowler who live at Cefn Bysmawr – less than one kilometre from the proposed turbine site – said they and others living in the area had several concerns.

Mrs Bowler added: “This turbine will have a huge impact on the area and will be visible from a wide area.

“We are also concerned with drainage issues because around 13 homes rely on water springs and the concrete base needed for such a turbine could upset the water table and drainage on the land below.

“There is a strong level of opposition towards this.”
