Windpower Wales is pleased to announce that the amended Llys Dymper wind farm planning application was submitted to Conwy County Borough Council planning department on Thursday February 16th 2012. This submission for ten turbines with a maximum tip height of 110 metres follows the withdrawal of the previous application for 17 turbines with tip heights of 126 meters.

After full consultation with the community and relevant professional bodies, Windpower Wales has made significant changes to the project which include;

  • reducing the number of turbines from 17 to 10
  • reducing the height of the turbines from 126m to tip to a maximum of 110m to tip
  • Connecting to the grid at the local sub-station in Llansannan
  • A more direct access route to the site
  • Paying the monies for the Community fund directly to six local Community Councils
  • Establishing a high interest bond exclusively for local investors to contribute to the cost of building the project
  • The project, when built, would supply enough electricity to supply the equivalent annual demand of some 15,000 homes in North Wales
