The group was formed to voice concerns over the influx of wind turbines across the island. It was set up in direct reaction to proposals for three 100 metre high wind turbines in the area of Penmynydd. This was not a highly publicised application: not all members of the community directly affected by the application were notified. The details were circulated by word of mouth and it soon became apparent that this was a problem that affected the whole of the Island.
The local authority markets the island as a ‘place where you can get away from it all. Relax, enjoy the hospitality and lose yourself in the island’s winding lanes or on its spectacular coast. There's also plenty to do for all the family with events, attractions and outdoor activities all set in beautiful scenery’.
Anglesey Council’s current planning guidance on wind turbines is being reviewed and updated. The Local Authority should consider the opinion of the population as a whole when drafting such guidance. The Local Authority needs to know the strength of the objections to wind turbines on Anglesey. We can begin this process by lobbying our local councillors, writing to the planning department, the commissioners and the Welsh Assembly.
