Agreed on Appeal

Despite local people voting in favour, the council turned down the planning application as did a Planning Inspector after a public inquiry.



Community led wind project to develop 2 turbines in the Upper Amman and Swansea Valley. All profits from the scheme will go into local regeneration. Selected as a case study for the World Summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg in Sept 2002 and included in new planning guidance on wind energy published by the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister in 2005.
