Local community invited to share their views and find out more

Since the first round of community consultations in May 2022, Dragon’s project team has worked hard on the plans for three wind turbines, known as Dragon Energy, to be situated to the west of the operational Wear Point Wind Farm. As of Thursday 12th January 2023, the team will be undertaking formal public consultations for the proposed development, before a DNS (Development of National Significance) application will be submitted to the Welsh Government later in the year.

Managing Director Simon Ames said: “If approved, Dragon Energy, alongside our recent solar development, could contribute up to 47% of our on-site electricity demand. This represents a considerable step forward in local net-zero ambitions while securing the future of our business in Pembrokeshire. We look forward to further engage with members of the local community on our plans and we invite everyone to get involved in this exciting project.”

The full pack of planning application documents will be available for public viewing on the Downloads page of this website from Thursday 12 January. A hard copy will be available for members of the public to review at Dragon LNG. Instructions on how to view the hard copy documents are available here.

A second community walk-in event is scheduled for Thursday 26th January from 1.30-7.30pm, where members of the project team will be on hand to discuss the evolved proposals and answer questions. The event will take place at Newton Hall, Main Road, Waterston, SA73 1DR. The formal pre-application consultation process will close at 11.59.59pm on Thursday 23rd February 2023.
