Garreg Lwyd Hill wind farm plan refused by Powys councillors

BBC News | 5 September 2013 |

Plans for 23 wind turbines measuring 126m (415ft) have been unanimously refused by Powys councillors.

Powys council said the turbines at Garreg Lwyd Hill, near Llanbadarn Fynydd, would have an adverse impact on the landscape and views in the area.

A separate application for a new section of road in Newtown, over 10 miles away, to carry abnormal loads to the windfarm, is also being considered.

The council’s planning committee will vote on that application shortly.
