Bryn Llewllyn Wind Farm Appeal Dismissed!

News is just in that the Appeal against the decision by Carmarthenshire County Council, in December 2012, to refuse permission for 21 wind turbines on Llanllwni Mountain has failed.

This is great news for Carmarthenshire, and for everyone who has fought so tirelessly against this monster development.

The residents of Llanllwni and beyond have lived with the threat of 21 giant machines, 127 M tall, on the mountain for almost 3 and a half years ...  and will rightly be celebrating today!!

More importantly, though, the would-be developers have had a long, rough, expensive and ultimately unsuccessful ride ... which  ought to be a warning to all future developers and investors in Industrial Wind Turbine sites in rural Wales that they will not have it all their own way.

The original planning application for this site was submitted in late December 2010, and the application was formally refused by Carmarthenshire County Council on 18 December 2012.   

As expected, the applicant, RES UK & Ireland Ltd, then appealed the decision just over a year ago (in March 2013) - 14 months later, common sense has won the day, and the Appeal has been dismissed.

Well done to everyone who kept up the good fight against this potentially ruinous development.
