No Welshpool snub say windfarm firms

SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend


The two companies responsible for windfarms that will result in huge loads coming through the town this summer refuse claims that they have snubbed Welshpool.

Tirgwynt Wind Farm (‎Awel Newydd) and Garreg Lwyd Hill Wind Farm (RES), are organizing public events in Pant and Newtown this week, but MP Glyn Davies said they should be hosting one in Welshpool.

He accused the giants of ignoring the townsfolk, but the two companies have hit back.

A joint response from the developers states:‎ “Awel Newydd and RES have worked together to organise these two information events on the turbine delivery arrangements for both Tirgwynt and Garreg Lwyd Hill Wind Farms.

“We aim to be as inclusive and open as possible at these events, and following extensive consultation with local community councils, the venues were chosen to ensure both locations were accessible to as many people as possible along the whole delivery route and that they reflected the areas of most concern to local people.

“Awel Newydd has attended several public meetings in Welshpool and met regularly with the community liaison group to share specific information on deliveries and the route through Welshpool - and the recent trial run demonstrated the measures we have implemented to minimise disruption there have been effective.

“RES has also engaged with Town and County Councillors representing Welshpool, and both Awel Newydd and RES have made contact information widely available for members of the public to discuss any questions or concerns regarding the construction of the wind farms.”

For those unable to attend either Turbine Delivery Public Information Event, all display materials will be published on the following project websites from Friday.
