RES loses Welsh wind battle
48MW Bryn Llywelyn tossed out after three years in planning
The Welsh government has tossed out RES plans for the 48MW Bryn Llywelyn wind farm in south Wales.
Cardiff ministers rejected an appeal filed by the developer following original refusal by Carmarthenshire Council in November 2012.
Officials had recommended dismissal despite the wind farm's location in a Strategic Search Area due to impacts on landscape character, tourism and habitats.
Bryn Llywelyn would have included 21 turbines and tip heights of 127 metres near Llanllwni. The original application was filed in February 2011.
