Mynydd y Gwynt Wind Farm

Andrew Mason


I object to all wind farms on welsh soil. They will bring no benefit to the area, no jobs, plenty of c02 through extra road loads. Disrupt wildlife, disrupt valuable peat beds, trees will be removed for turbines.wind turbines are only 19% efficient & cannot be relied upon. Not 1 power station will shut down. More will need to be built to back up these monstrouscities.The landscape will be plastered with ugly turbines of up to 606 feet. Tourism will suffer & the local economy through loss of revenue. Business will suffer. Emergency service response times will lengthen through road delays caused by turbine traffic. Plus many more reasons.

Until an application is made to the IPC, it is the developer's responsibility to seek views on its proposals. However, it is helpful for the IPC to be kept notified of the progress of this application from local residents. Your comments have been noted and will be kept for our information.
The proposed Mynydd y Gwynt Wind Farm is currently at the pre-application stage where the developer (in this case Mynydd y Gwynt Ltd and Renewable Energy Holdings) must comply with consultation requirements as set out in the Planning Act 2008. The pre-application consultation gives you the opportunity to shape and influence the proposed project. The developer is required to take account of any comments it receives and demonstrate how it has done this when it makes an application. As you may be aware the formal consultation with the local community on this project is due to commence shortly, you should therefore direct any concerns to the developer. Similarly, if you feel that your views are not being taken on board at pre-application stage, you should inform the developer and Powys County Council?s planning department as the local authority has the opportunity to comment to the IPC on the adequacy of the consultation undertaken.
Should an application be submitted and then accepted to go forward for examination, the public will be invited to register their interest and submit a ?Relevant Representation? to the IPC with a summary of their comments. More detailed representations can then be made during the examination stage. Further information can also be found on our website:
