The Government has announced the results of a series of planning applications for onshore wind farms in Wales, with four refused but consent given for the CeltPower Llandinam onshore wind farm repowering.
The refused applications are:
- Llanbadarn Fynydd onshore wind farm, plans submitted by Vattenfall
- Llaithddu onshore wind farm by Fferm Wynt Llaithddu
- Llanbrynmair onshore wind farm by RES UK and Ireland
- Carnedd Wen onshore wind farm by Npower Renewables
Also refused was a Llandinam to Welshpool substation overhead power line connection application from SP Manweb, part of Scottish Power.
The decisions follow a combined public inquiry, called by the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, which closed in May 2014.
A Department of Energy and Climate Change spokesperson said: “Careful consideration has been given to each application, and the planning and energy issues involved.”
