Sacrificing our landscape
ENJOY the fantastic wilderness called Mynydd y Gwair while you can. Swansea councillors have in their wisdom given their approval by 27 votes to 24 to destroy this ancient unspoilt landscape with the construction of a massive wind factory with all the service roads, concrete, cables and other elements associated with such a large industrial development. They have sacrificed a beautiful corner of Swansea for very little gain and have shown the utmost contempt to the people who live and work in that area! The sad fact is that the only beneficiaries of this appalling decision is multi-millionaire landowner the Duke of Beaufort and RWE Npower Renewables, the company which intends building these monstrosities. They must be rubbing their hands with glee.
