Vattenfall has published a feedback report following its first round of engagement on its proposals for the Mynydd Lluest y Graig wind farm in Powys.
The feedback report follows five summer events which attracted more than 100 local residents.
Ruari Lean, senior development manager at Vattenfall, said:
”We would like to thank everyone who attended and provided initial feedback on Mynydd Lluest y Graig, which has helped us better understand local people’s initial interest, concerns and ideas for the project. A range of comments were received, particularly in relation to potential visual impactsand a need to understand better the impact on roads during construction.
“We will now work towards designing an initial windfarm layout with a view to being able to share this with local communities next year. We will also continue to provide information and address the questions raised over the coming months.”
The feedback report is available to download from the project website, www.vattenfall.co.uk/en/mynydd-lluest-y-graig, alongside other project information, documents andnews.
