Glyncorrwg Action Glyncorrwg

Who says it's so?

SIR – Llywelyn Rhys recites the usual mantra of the British Wind Energy Association: – “Popular surveys continually show large support for wind power” (Letters, August 23).

How then does he explain 11,397 objections, with only 59 letters in support, of the huge windfarm proposed on the Isle of Lewis?

And, in the Vale of Glamorgan, the Scarweather Sand development drew 3,100 objections with, according to WAG, just nine letters of support. These are unprecedented numbers of objections to planning applications.

Who is making unsubstantiated claims?
