Credit:  4 June 2013 bbc.co.uk ~~

Hundreds of protesters gathered in Powys to mark Britain’s biggest ever public inquiry into wind farms.

A hotel in Welshpool is hosting the arguments for and against wind energy and could last for up to a year.

Plans for five large wind farms across mid Wales will be looked at.

An alliance of 21 organisations oppose plans.

Powys council has earmarked £2.8m from reserves to fund the inquiry prompting concern from some members about the impact on the authority’s other work.
