Under the Planning Act 2008 any developer who is proposing to build something which has a significant impact on the county's infrastructure, economy and landscape has to consult local residents as part of the process. The majority of these proposals will then have to be considered by the Infrastructure Planning Commission. (IPC) The Commission is an independent body which examines applications for things like power stations, wind farms, airports, sewage treatment works etc...
Although our Have Your Say web pages are about allowing you to comment on council consultations we thought it appropriate to add on any windfarm websites so you can see at a glance which developers are proposing what and comment as you see fit. Before they submit their application, all developers have to produce a Statement of Community Consultation which sets out the details of their consultation plans. The Council has a role to comment on these and give constructive feedback. The IPC will take account of this and other concerns raised by consultees when judging each application.
Below is a list of current websites which may be of interest to you as a local resident.
The Welsh Government produces various policies and plans and this link provides you with a chance to find out more about their consultations.
