e-Petition: Say No to Tan 8 - Windfarms & High Voltage Power Lines
Spoiling our Community

The Welsh Assembly Government Technical Advice Note (TAN)
8:- Planning for Renewable Energy (2005) document provides advice and guidelines
which without doubt result in the desecration of our beautiful Mid-Wales
Countryside. Following these guidelines, will spoil our beautiful landscape,
increase health risk from electro-magnetic radiation, damage tourism which is
one of the main employment sectors, devalue properties and cause major
environmental damage. When the technical advice note popularly known as
TAN 8 was issued by the Welsh Assembly Government in 2005, the local population
did not truly grasp the scale of what it meant to the inhabitants of Mid Wales
and Shropshire.The Technical Advice Note TAN 8 will allow hundreds of
huge wind turbines to be built upon wind farms within our communities.As
a result of the construction of these wind farms the National Grid will be
obliged to construct power transmission lines to carry the power to where it is
needed, although it is recognised that the National Assembly for Wales are not
involved in the decision to route these power lines.
We call upon the National Assembly for Wales to urge
the Welsh Government to undertake a major review of the TAN 8 policy to include
more public consultation.
