Brechfa Forest wind farm power line route consultation starts

People are being urged to air their views on proposed power line routes for a controversial wind farm in Carmarthenshire.
Consultation now begins over approval for the power lines to be put up in Brechfa Forest.
Opponents are unhappy Western Power Distribution (WPD) wants to connect them with double-poled wooden structures up to 18m (59ft) high.
Carmarthenshire council and others want the proposed power lines to be buried.
WPD, the company responsible for connecting the electricity from the planned wind farms to the distribution network, has already announced proposed corridors for the route.
The preferred route will join existing overhead lines south of Carmarthen.
