Plans for a wind farm in Powys have been rejected by the UK government.

The proposed Mynydd y Gwynt wind farm, at Glanrhyd five miles west of Llangurig, included 27 turbines and would have generated up to 89.1 megawatts (MW).

The decision follows a six-month examination by the planning inspectorate.

The application was submitted for consideration on 31 July 2014 following a community consultation in 2011.
