MIKE HEDGES AM URGES PEOPLE TO CONTRIBUTE TO CONSULTATION ON (DRAFT) NATIONAL DEVELOPMENT FRAMEWORK
Speaking from his Swansea East office, Mike Hedges AM said.. ‘ I am aware of the controversy surrounding large green energy projects. The consultation on the National Development Framework allows individuals, communities and community groups to have a say on the sort of project that gets priority in the next 20 years. I would urge everyone to look at the Draft plan and if you are in an area affected, make your views known!
Consultation details can be accessed on –
The Welsh landscape could be destroyed if more wind farms are built, campaigners have warned.
They accept the need for renewable energy but are concerned about the impact on tourism in some areas.
A draft National Development Framework (NDF) identifies where big projects should go over the next 20 years.
It has highlighted 14 “priority areas” for wind and solar energy but the Welsh Government said it would not comment while a consultation was ongoing.
The NDF, which also looks at projects such as housing and transport, will be the highest tier of development plan in Wales.
All other plans – including council local development plans – would have to conform with the NDF.
