Campaigners step up turbine battle

Residents objecting to plans for a 67-metre wind turbine above Cardigan were last night (Tuesday) hoping to persuade town councillors not to support the controversial proposal.

Supporters of the turbine – which would be situated on land owned by town councillor Richard Jones, at Oernant farm – say it could have far-reaching benefits for Cardigan.

But members of No Oernant Wind Turbine (NOWT) fear that, if approved, the application could “open the floodgates” for similar turbines in the area and claim it will “dominate” the Cardigan skyline.

Last night they were giving a presentation to Cardigan Town Council in the hope of getting members to back their campaign.

They have already collected a “significant” number of signatures for their petition which they will hand in at Ceredigion County Council’s headquarters when a date is set for the application to go before the planning committee.

The turbine project is the creation of Cardigan Community Energy, part of the Awel Deg/Fair Wind co-operative.

Mr Jones maintains that the local community can benefit from wind power and argues that his proposal is preferable to big companies setting up wind farms and draining profit from the local economy.
