Glyncorrwg Action Glyncorrwg

Not in his back yard

SIR - I have never written to the newspapers before but the letter from the Director of the Spanish-based wind energy developers who want to build a windfarm in the Upper Afon Valley made me very angry, so this is a first for me.

I know Mr Partridge, the director, lives in Nailsworth in the Cotswolds and he thinks it is right to spoil our hillsides by building ugly wind turbines. Of course, Gamesa will make a lot of money from this horrible proposal. Would the residents of Nailsworth in the Cotswolds accept 600ft-high turbines half-a-mile from their homes?

I don't think so Mr Partridge, but that is what your firm is proposing to do where I live.

People write letters because they care about their area.

I shall do all I can to make sure this proposal will not happen. Listen to us, we live in Glyncorrwg.
