Update from SHCH (Stonewall Hill Conservation Group) Both the Bowdler Farm and Reeves Hill Developments have moved a stage nearer to final decisions being taken as to whether they can go ahead.

On Thursday 20 March, the Planning Committee meeting at Brecon Beacons National Park Authority Offices was packed with many wind turbine opponents, 30 people were admitted to the council meeting.  The arguments against the single turbine focused on the turbines’ huge size, the impact on the landscape and the potential impact on tourism.  Cumulative impact with Reeves Hill windfarm was another major objection to the Bowdler Farm turbine.  Votes were 12 against with 2 abstentions for Bowdler Farm.

The Powys resolution to recommend refusal of Bowdler Farm 79m turbine followed the advice in the Planning Officers’ Report. The report and recommendation will now form part of the evidence considered at the 14 May public Appeal Hearing, alongside the report of SHCG’s Landscape Consultant, Mark Steele.  The Planning Inspector will then consider the Appeal application and issue a final decision on the Bowdler Farm turbine some weeks later.  Patrick Smith, SHCG Press Officer 07.04.14
