I was involved with this project in its early stages, when it was referred to as Cilfaesty Hill wind farm. Subsequently, the developers investigated additional areas of land, removing Cilfaesty Hill from the proposals and the final scheme name was changed to reflect this.
I undertook detailed Phase 1 habitat survey, NVC survey and mammal survey of the site to inform the design process. I also participated in white-clawed crayfish survey and assessed the site’s potential to support uncommon bryophyte species.
A planning application for the scheme was submitted in January 2012 and further information can be found on the developer’s website.
