LAND NORTH OF BLAENPIBWR, CAPEL DEWIAppeal Ref : 3131840
SINGLE 74M TIP WIND TURBINE AND ASSOCIATED INFRASTRUCTURE so 243 feet to tip
This development at Llanarthney, was refused Planning Permission by the LPA, but this decision has now been appealed by the developers.
Objections are urgently needed (by 13 November 2015) to this Appeal, which, if allowed, would see a massive turbine erected in the beautiful Tywi Valley, very close to tourist attractions of Aberglasney and Paxtons Tower.
Please see below for further details of the proposed development - and how you can help stop it!
This 74M (243ft) high turbine is proposed for the Tywi Valley, just south of Nantgaredig and about 1.5 miles to the west of the National Botanic Gardens and near to the Y Polyn restaurant.
The machine will be visible from miles around and will represent a highly intrusive, man made structure in an area of great cultural and historical significance, with a valuable tourist trade.
Natural Resources Wales [NRW] sent a very firm objection, recommending that the Application was refused due to the likely adverse effects on the Tywi Valley Registered Landscape of Outstanding Historic Interest, which is of national importance. To read the letter in full, please click here.
Whilst this letter and other concerns as to the inevitable visual impact of the machine were evidently taken into account by CCC in refusing permission, the developers have still seen fit to refer this to Cardiff.
It is still possible, however, to comment on the appeal; to ask the PI to uphold the decision made by our local council, and to reiterate any concerns about the development.
This may be our only chance to prevent the local planning decision being overturned by an out of area inspector, so we do urge you to submit as many objections as possible.
To do this, please go to the Planning Inspectorate site here and use the Make Representation button at the top right hand side of the screen.
