A south Wales planning authority has resoundingly rejected plans for a 22.5 MW wind farm in Gwent. Islwyn Borough councillors unanimously turned down an application by Newbridge Construction to install 45 turbines on common land within a locally designated special landscape area. The scheme ran into a storm of public protest and Neil Kinnock, local Member of Parliament and former Labour party leader, threw his weight behind the objectors. It was also opposed by the county council and neighbouring planning authorities.
