SP Manweb, is reminding local residents that there is still time to comment on the North Wales Wind Farms Connection Project. The proposals consist of 17 kilometres of overhead line carried on wood poles, which are approximately 15 metres in height.
The Project will connect four proposed wind farms in the Clocaenog Forest area to an existing substation at St Asaph. The planned wind farms are Clocaenog Forest (developed by RWE npower renewables), Brenig (Brenig Wind Ltd), Nant Bach (Vattenfall) and Derwydd Bach (Tegni).
Responses received up until midnight on Saturday 28 June 2014 will be considered as part of the consultation. The deadline for responses was extended last month following requests from members of the community.
SP Manweb will analyse and consider all the feedback it receives before making any final changes to the Project. SP Manweb is aiming to submit an application for a Development Consent Order (DCO) to the Planning Inspectorate later in the year. All feedback submitted to the Project will be responded to in a Consultation Report, which is submitted as part of the DCO.
All of the project information can be found on the project website (www.nwwindfarmsconnection.co.uk). SP Manweb has also set up a number of locations where information about the Project can be found throughout the consultation period. People can also contact the Project’s community relations team on 0800 021 7879 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
