About UsThe Mynydd Llansadwrn Action Group (MLAG) was formed ten years ago to (successfully) oppose a scheme to build three 91-metre-high wind turbines on Mynydd Llansadwrn.
In 2003, when news of a proposed wind farm came to the attention of local residents, there was a public meeting to discuss the issues and 240 people signed up to be part of an action group to contest the proposed development on Mynydd Llansadwrn. A small working group met regularly during the early years to devise a detailed action plan to be instigated when the planning application was submitted. The rest of the action group was kept informed and involved by letter and email.
Fortunately, the proposed Mynydd Llansadwrn wind farm never went to planning. The developers abandoned the project. However, the MLAG working group has continued to meet regularly over the years, in the local pub, with formal and informal meetings. We felt it was important to remain active and vigilant in the face of growing number of wind farms being proposed throughout Wales. One of our roles has been to assist other groups in their fight against inappropriate wind turbine developments in Carmarthenshire. We have also submitted representations to the House of Lords Select Committee on the Economics of Rewnable Energy, and the Welsh Affairs Select Committee Inquiry into Energy, which can be viewed here:

With the current proliferation of wind turbine developments the working group has redesigned the website and expanded in size. With over ten years' experience we feel we can give practical help to anyone who needs to challenge a wind turbine development. We can help you set up a group, hold a public meeting and can offer space on this website.
