Fury over Mid Wales windfarms appeal move 

Credit:  Shropshire Star | October 22, 2015 | www.shropshirestar.com ~~

A Government decision to throw out controversial plans for several windfarms will be appealed.

Two of the companies behind the bid to build four windfarms and an overhead power line in Mid Wales want a judicial review to be held to decide whether or not the project will go ahead.

RES UK wanted to build a windfarm in Llanbrymair, while RWE Innogy had plans for Carnedd Wen. Glyn Davies, Montgomeryshire MP, said the Government had confirmed to him that the two companies want to appeal.

The Department of Energy and Climate Change refused permission for the windfarms and power line earlier this year. Had the plans been given the go ahead by energy minister Andrea Leasdom, it would have resulted in a power line linking the windfarms to the national supply in Shropshire.

Mr Davies said: “I have had it confirmed to me that RWE Innogy and RES UK want a judicial review on the Government’s decision.

“It is absolutely appalling and they have shown no regard for their customers, the people of Mid Wales or the whole idea of democracy. These are the only two appeals received and it is not to say that their appeal will be agreed and heard, but that is what they want.

“I don’t think they are very sensible to ask for a review. The public’s regard for both companies will be damaged and they are taking on the Government. It will cause huge reputational damage to them and I hope they get thrown out again.”

Mike Whitbread, RES development manager, said: “No words can express our reaction to how RES fared following the lengthy ordeal that was the Mid Wales Public Inquiry.
