Mynydd Carn-y-Cefn: Pennant Walters Update

Following the statutory consultation held from 24 May to 8 July 2022, Pennant Walters has submitted its proposals for Mynydd Carn-y-Cefn wind farm – located to the west of Abertillery within the administrative boundary of Blaenau Gwent County Borough Council (BGCBC).

The responses to the consultation have been documented, considered and acted upon as appropriate by the project team, with the following amends made to the proposals, including:

· Implementing appropriate mitigation measures in the form of curtailment of certain turbines to reduce the risk to bats.

· Undertaking Dormouse surveys.

· Retaking viewpoint photos 21, 22 and 23 due to atmospheric haze.

· Further specialist desk-based mining risk assessment work has been commissioned to inform the pre-construction stage.

· A mitigation plan has been agreed with Cadw, which now forms part of the application documents and will be implemented to mitigate any significant effects on the historic environment.

The application is now with Planning and Environment Decisions Wales (PEDW) where it will be considered by an Inspector before the final decision is made by Welsh Ministers.

The deadline for comments is 4 January 2023.
