To ease the fears caused by the upcoming delivery of turbines to local wind farms this summer, developers are inviting residents to drop-in sessions.

On Tuesday, July 12 in Pant Memorial Hall and Thursday, July 14 at NPTC Group, Newtown Campus on Llanidloes Road, Newtown developers will update local people about turbine component deliveries which will be starting later in July.

Awel Newydd and RES are inviting members of the public and other stakeholders to join them at about the turbine delivery programmes for Tirgwynt Wind Farm (Awel Newydd), between Carno and Cefn Coch, and Garreg Lwyd Hill Wind Farm (RES), between Felindre and Llanbadarn Fynydd.

Both events will take place from 3-7pm.

The events will include information about the delivery plans and timings of convoys carrying turbine components as they pass villages and towns on the route with a full police escort. Representatives from both companies will be available to discuss the deliveries and answer questions.

Turbine deliveries for Tirgwynt Wind Farm are due to begin on July 25 and last through to mid-September.

Turbine deliveries for Garreg Lwyd Hill Wind Farm are due to begin on September 12 - after the deliveries for Tirgwynt Wind Farm have concluded - and continue until mid-December.

Andy Black, Director, Awel Newydd Cyf, said: “We have been in discussion with the police forces involved as well as the highway authorities to ensure that the safety of road users is prioritised and any potential disruption is minimised. Whilst we expect minimal traffic delays, we understand that some people may have concerns and we look forward to meeting people at both events in Pant and Newtown, and welcome their questions about the planned delivery routes and timing.”
