Upper Ogmore - Wind Turbines

Received 13 January 2021
From Stephanie Smith


1.As a resident of Pwllcarn Terrace, Blaengarw, I do not think that the visibility of the turbines from our houses have been given due consideration. These turbines seem to be much closer than the present ones which can be seen from the top end of our road. Please can someone address this point and assure me that we have not been overlooked.
2. This is an overdevelopment of what was previously open countryside/uplands. In the past 5 or6 years there has been a proliferation of turbines across our hills.
3. The uplands are a valuable habitat and are known to absorb rainwater. More concrete will create more run-off and subsequent flooding further down the valley.
