Nothing has been decided yet on the re-application for a turbine at Maescadog. Your objections can still help - of special importance are transport issues of the turbine to the site and new regulations about bats requiring more detailed monitoring. There are many species of bats roosting at the nearby Dolaucothi Gold Mines.

We need to act now! Another application has been made for a turbine at Maescadog, Caio. The previous application was refused by CCC AND at Appeal. Previous objections will not count so could you write again using the new application number? The turbine is at the same site and is the same size so look below for what to do now. You could resubmit your previous objection or do a new one.There were over 200 objections previously - yours matters this time too! Time is short so please get a letter in by 17th July. Click on this blog to see the information you might need for your objection.

A German company, Energiekontor, wants to erect two industrial scale wind turbines on Mynydd Pencarreg.
Feb 13, 2015

If you have recently bought a house in the county you could help us gather information.

Did any wind turbine applications situated in the vicinity of the house you bought show up during the conveyancing process?

Did the searches show proposed or applied for wind turbine developments that might impact on your house? These include council searches or the declaration by the seller.

We want to encourage the Law Society to improve their forms and solicitors to offer more extensive searches.
