Just an update on the situation here in the upper Dee Valley regarding a couple of the wind farm applications.
The two 46m (150ft) wind turbines at Syrior, just outside Llandrillo, were voted through by Denbighshire’s Planning committee back in February. The Council has recently issued the Decision Certificate, which means the matter is now in the hands of STEMM’s legal team with an aim to get this decision overturned through the formal judicial review process.
There is no more news yet regarding ScottishPower Renewables’ application to build 25, 145m (475ft) on the ridge and slopes of Mynydd Mynyllod. According to the National Infrastructure Planning website, this application is now expected some time in 2014. http://infrastructure.planningportal.gov.uk/projects/wales/mynydd-mynyllod-wind-farm/
As soon as we have more information about these plans, or for the two 125m (410ft) turbines proposed for Bodelith, near Bethel, we’ll put the details on here and STEMM’s Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/groups/444652548938828/#!/pages/STEMM/217154595034610
