Impact on Landscape
Note: counts do not include items in sub-categories
I live in Croeserw and I had beautiful views of the surrounding mountains.
Now I cringe at the view from the rear of my home - 16 gigantic wind turbines on the Abercregan Mountain, like something out of a science-fiction film.
To make matters worse, the Spanish company Gamesa plans to erect another 10 turbines on mountains in front of my house which will be nearly twice the size of the ones already standing - in fact, the largest in Europe - and another four of this size on the Glyncorrwg Mountain, which is to the rear right of my house.
Croeserw and Cymmer will be surrounded by wind turbines, which will be seen through the whole of the Afan, Llynfi and Garw valleys if this proposal goes ahead.
The people of the Valleys must unite and say NO! to this rape of our beautiful countryside.
I view with dismay how your counties of the South West are being ravaged by the desire of others for you to solve the world's climate change problems.I am not surprised that the wind farm development at Fullabrook Down in North Devon was passed. Cornwall has been an easy target for developers and now, with government blessing, the race is on to ruin Devon. ...One problem for our ministers, planners and inspectors is that unless they take the time to do independent research, the technical data they are presented with will have been supplied either directly by the British Wind Energy Association or an agency which gets it from the same source. While the public begins to wise up to wind power the Government still sees what it wants to.
