Site

Site

The site lies within Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council and is located on an upland plateau with steep sloping sides, 3km west of Pontypridd.

As currently defined, it extends to approximately 200 hectares, and comprises a plateau of extensive semi-improved acid grassland used for grazing livestock. The wider landscape surrounding the site is predominantly used for livestock grazing with plantation conifer woodland managed for forestry and small urban settlements. The site will be accessed via the public highway either from Swansea or Bristol docks.

There are a number of constraints that we will need to take into account as we develop the proposals for Mynydd y Glyn Wind Farm. These include forestry, landscape features, biodiversity sites, Public Rights of Way, haul roads, farms and Open Access Land.

Constraints Plan

Over the course of the year, environmental surveys will continue to be undertaken. They will help us identify the best location for the wind turbines.
