Turbine bid fails

A bid to build two 77 metre tall wind turbines near Llanfyrnach has failed, after a planning inspector ruled they would harm the character and appearance of the surrounding landscape.

Cwm Arian Renewable Energy was last year refused planning permission by Pembrokeshire County Council to build the turbines at Trefawr Farm.

At a recent appeal hearing against the decision, planning inspector Sian Worden was told the structures would only be four kilometres from the eleven turbines which comprise the wind farm at Dyffryn Brodyn but would be taller.

In dismissing the appeal, she said the proposed turbines would stand near the top of a fairly steep slope facing Llanfyrnach and would appear “large and dominant.”
