Turbine plan near Dylan Thomas' last home scrapped

Plans to build a wind turbine opposite Dylan Thomas's Boathouse in Laugharne have been quashed at the High Court.

Carmarthenshire council's planning committee voted in favour of the development at Mwche farm in June 2014.

Campaigners, including council officers, had protested that it would blight the view from the house.

A judicial review looking into the decision has found in favour of the campaigners and the council has to pay £21,275 in costs but can appeal.
