The planning committee approved an application to build and operate six wind turbines at Parc Cynog Farm, Castle Lloyd Farm and Westmead Farm, Pendine.

Planning policy liaison officer David Poulter told the committee that there were already five turbines at the site and proposals for another six.

There was increased urgency on the part of the Government to generating energy from renewable sources.

Planning permission for the existing wind farm, now proposed to be extended, was granted on appeal on February 1, 2000.

Permission was granted for six turbines, of which five were built. They have a maximum height, to blade tip, of 69m and a total installed capacity of 3MW. The applicant indicated that the sixth turbine would not be erected if planning permission is granted for the current proposal.

Officers recommended approval of the extension saying that the proposed development would make a significant contribution to generation of electricity from a renewable source, and would not have an unacceptable environmental impact.
