Wind Farms

Volume 451: debated on Wednesday 8 November 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what proposals he has been informed of for wind farms with a generating capacity in excess of 50MW in (a) Clocaenog Forest, (b) Denbighshire and (c) the county borough of Conwy. (99937)

No onshore wind farm applications above 50MW are currently being considered in Wales. However, a pre-application scoping opinion was requested and subsequently given on 12 May 2006 under the Electricity Works (Environmental Impact Assessment) (England and Wales) Regulations 2000 for the proposed Brenig wind farm at Tir Mostyn, Denbighshire. This may or may not result in an application.
