Anglesey Against Wind Turbines


AAWT is dedicated to preserving our island landscape. We exist to oppose any further erection of commercial on-shore wind turbines on the grounds that they are deleterious to our fragile economy, unreliable, inefficient, noisy, unsightly and damaging to our wildlife.

Applications are still being made for more industrial turbines on Anglesey - which means that we can’t rest on our laurels.

See the Campaigns page.

The Government is pushing ahead with its commitment to end public subsidies for onshore wind farms, by closing the Renewables Obligation across Great Britain from 1 April 2016.

The projects that are eligible for the grace period will need to demonstrate either that they had planning consent as at 18 June; that they have successfully appealed a planning refusal made on or before 18 June; or that they have successfully appealed after not receiving a planning decision due by 18 June. They will also need to show that they had a grid connection and land rights in place. Projects that have met all these criteria and can demonstrate that they have struggled to secure finance from lenders since 18 June will be allowed extra time but no longer than nine months.

In December 2015, we were acknowledged by one of the proponents of wind power as having substantially influenced thinking about turbine developments on Anglesey.
