Renewable Energy Proposals Recommended

The County Council’s Planning Committee on 5 August is recommended to give conditional approval to applications for two wind turbines at Great House Farm, Undy (previously deferred after a recommendation for refusal) and for a solar farm at Pen y Cae Mawr, Wentwood.  The applicant’s appeal against the refusal of a solar farm at Manor Farm, Llanfapley starts at County Hall, Usk on 13 August.   The committee will also receive a briefing paper on the planning policy context for onshore shale gas exploration.

Footnote: the Planning Committee approved both applications.
