Wind farms

BBC has an 'Action Network Briefing' that summarizes many of the issues. There is a Welsh Assembly 'Consultation on Draft Ministerial Interim Planning Policy Statement on Renewable Energy and Draft Technical Advice Note 8: Renewable Energy', where there are draft maps, including a map of a proposed area south of the Brecon Beacons National Park, and outlines of what is being planned. Opposition is focused through the Campaign for the Protection of Rural Wales who have a list made 22/09/2003 of proposed turbine installation in Wales. None are planned forthe Senni Valley.

There is a summary (Technical Advice Note (TAN) 8 Review of Wind Farm Developer Interest 2011) of Wind Farm Developments (April 2011), which have been approved or are being considered by the UK Government (for projects over 50MegaWatts) or by Local Planning Authorities in Wales. The Minister for Environment and Sustainable Development approves of this, but there is opposition.
