This Post is a summary of our new web page with full details about the Hendy wind farm application, and on how to help us and how to object to the application.
CPRW Brecon & Radnor Branch are urgently appealing for your help.
Powys Council turned down the Hendy Wind Farm application, for 7 x 110m turbines on Llandegley Rhos, in April this year. The developers are now appealing against the Council’s decision on grounds that the national need for renewable energy should override negative local impacts.
CPRW Brecon & Radnor Branch will be participating in the Inspector’s inquiry to support the Council’s case and bring further evidence. This needs the right professional help to present the best case and give us the greatest chance of success. We have been lucky to be able to engage an expert planning barrister and professional landscape consultant. We now urgently need to raise the funds to cover their costs.
Many local people will also wish to make their own objections. Please follow the link to the new web page to find details of the locations of documents and the procedure for submitting an objection.
If the developers are successful in overturning the Council’s decision, this will open the door to wind development right across the Welsh countryside.
This is a critical test case which we cannot afford to lose. Your help is incredibly important.
