The British Mountaineering Council (BMC) will be holding a public meeting to discuss their current position on wind turbines in the uplands on Saturday 10th September at the Electric Mountain Visitor Centre, Llanberis.
'Sustainable Energy, Sustainable Landscapes' is a BMC seminar exploring developments and wind turbines in the uplands. The event will be chaired by Steve Evison from Resources for Change. It is intended to explore the breadth of views on current developments in the uplands (in particular wind turbines) and whether the BMC can reach a consensus and develop a stronger, more meaningful upland policy. Have your say.
A more detailed agenda will be posted on the BMC website soon. The event will run from 9am to 1pm and numbers are limited so attendance will be on a first come first served basis. Advanced registration is necessary so if you are interested in attending this event then please contact Access and Conservation Officer Cath Flitcroft by email - email@example.com (with your membership number if possible).
