Developer National Wind Power (NWP) is to appeal against rejection of its planned 10 MW wind farm at Jordanston near Fishguard, Pembrokeshire. Pembrokeshire County Council voted overwhelmingly to turn down the application for 17, 600 kW wind turbines by 15 votes to 1. According to council planning officer David Lawrence, Jordanston did not comply with area planning policies -- largely because of its landscape impact. "It is close to the Pembrokeshire National Park and is highly visible from a wide area. It is also in the north west part of Pembrokeshire which is a very attractive holiday location," he explains. The project is the second proposed wind farm in Pembrokeshire to be thrown out. The latest decision follows two earlier rejections of NWP's applications for a larger wind farm at Cilciffeth, some ten kilometres away.
