Not fully opposed

Regarding "The Art of balancing planning priorities" (Windpower Monthly, September 1998). The author writes it is not true that the Campaign for the Protection of Rural Wales (CPRW) campaigns for a blanket ban on all wind development in Wales. CPRW is opposed to large scale wind installations in the open countryside but would consider small scale installations when "small" would be determined by the landscape context.

Whilst CPRW would question many of the points raised in "The Art of balancing planning priorities" (Windpower Monthly, September 1998), we acknowledge that we would have to "agree to disagree." But there is one statement that is totally false.

You state that CPRW "now campaigns for a blanket ban on all wind development in Wales." This is not true. CPRW supports the principle of wind power. CPRW would be ready to consider wind power installations in what it deems appropriate areas such as industrialised or semi-industrialised areas and on the right scale. CPRW is opposed to large scale wind installations in the open countryside but would consider small scale installations when "small" would be determined by the landscape context.
