Plan for wind farm at Llanllwni, Carmarthenshire, rejected


A proposed plan for a 21-turbine wind farm in Carmarthenshire has been refused despite being in an area outlined for wind energy projects.

Renewable energy firm RES wanted to site 127m (400ft) high turbines at Llanllwni which would generate 48.3 megawatts of power.

It would have been in one of seven areas of mid and south Wales chosen in 2005 by the Welsh government for such schemes, called Tan 8 policy.
