UPDATE 24th March 2020
The Afon Cynfal is safe for now.
The Snowdonia National Park Authority have placed the application for the Cwm Cynfal hydro scheme on hold. The planning department rightly decided that the application submitted was inadequate for such a potentially damaging development. A full EIA (Environmental Impact Assessment) has been requested, we are unsure on whether the developer will complete this, and if they do when it will be submitted.
Many thanks to everyone who has written an objection to this inappropriate development. If the developer submits the EIA there will be a further chance to comment. We will let you know at that time.
