THE people of Betws should try to gain as much in community funds as they can from the operators of the controversial Mynydd-y-Betws windfarm.
That is the view of newlyelected county councillor Ryan Bartlett, who says the construction of the 15-turbine project is a done deal.
He told members of Betws community council that antiwindfarm campaigners in Lincolnshire and Norfolk had won judicial reviews on environmental grounds.
“TheamountofGovernment subsidies these windfarms are getting is absolutely fantastic,”
said Cllr Bartlett.
“I think you should try and get as much as you can out of them because these turbines are going to be built.”
