Politicians to host another public meeting on wind farm pylon proposals

Following requests from residents, Plaid Cymru politicians Jonathan Edwards MP and Rhodri Glyn Thomas AM will host a further public meeting regarding the proposals to erect wooden pylons in Carmarthenshire.

The public meeting will take place at 7pm on Monday 16th September in Pencader Pavilion.

This is the second public meeting organised by the Plaid Cymru duo since Western Power Distribution published its options to connect the Brechfa wind farms to the National Grid.

Carmarthenshire MP Jonathan Edwards, who has previously held a Parliamentary debate on the applications for the wind turbines, said he will be calling for a debate when the House of Commons returns after the summer recess.

Jonathan Edwards MP said:

“The first public meeting organised by Rhodri Glyn Thomas and myself was a success in the sense that it gave individual residents an opportunity to share their opinions on the pylon proposals – something Western Power Distribution has not yet allowed individuals to do.

“As a Member of Parliament I can call a debate on the floor of the Commons with a simple request.

“Indeed I’ve previously held a Parliamentary debate on the Brechfa West planning application itself and had the Energy Minister summoned to that debate.  My intention is to the same once Parliament returns after recess.

“This second meeting in Pencader follows a request from local residents themselves.  We are more than happy to arrange this and look forward to what I’m sure will be another packed hall.”
