Campaigners complete environmental assessment for Herefordshire wind farm

Campaigners against a wind farm on the Welsh border have submitted their environmental impact assessment ahead of a key appeal hearing.

Stonewall Hill Conservation Group submitted its assessment to Powys County Council last week.

In 2012 Herefordshire Council accepted an environmental assessment, however with access to the site – 100m into England – coming from Wales the matter has also been brought to Powys council.

Permission for a nearby 79-metre turbine at Bowdler Farm, near Knighton, last week voted down by Powys’ planning committee by 12 votes.

It will now proceed to an appeal hearing in May.
