Bryn wind farm: Calls to withdraw 250m-high turbines plan

Opponents to a proposed wind farm in south Wales have urged the Welsh government to dismiss the plans. If approved, Y Bryn Onshore Wind Farm in Neath Port Talbot would be the largest onshore wind farm in the UK. Residents are opposed to the planned size of the 26 turbines – 250m high – and the potential risks they pose to wildlife, property values, as well as people’s physical health and mental wellbeing. The company behind the proposal, Coriolis, said . . . Complete story »

It follows a recent think tank report that called for action to avoid a “local backlash” against onshore work needed to support developments, such as pylons, cabling and substations. Policy Exchange said “offshore wind wealth funds” should be introduced. UK government officials said they wanted communities to benefit from wind farm developments. The think tank said without support, offshore wind farms would experience opposition similar to . . . Complete story »

Windfarm in bid to continue turning for another decade on Anglesey

The existing planning permission means that the windfarm, operational since 1996, should be returned to its original state after June 2021. But the developers, Ventient Energy Limited, argue there is scope to continue going past the 25 years originally planned . . . Complete story »

Scant regard for countryside

It seems that there is now a new surge by developers and speculators to capitalise on the new goldrush on Carmarthenshire’s hills and meadows. In your article last week (May 5) where you reported that the energy firm Energiekontor (German) intends to erect two wind turbines each of over 400ft high above Rhydcymerau, it is, I’m afraid, just the tip of it. Also, above Gwernogle, Pumsaint and Crugybar a firm from Cornwall called Clean Earth are in the early stages . . . Complete story »
