The map should be used in conjunction with the maps listed on walesdirectory.co.uk/maps.
For clarity only the officially designated sites of 'outstanding natural beauty ' and the National Parks are portrayed.

Most of Wales is of ' outstanding natural beauty ' and I hope will remain so. However the threat of the GIANT WIND TURBINES must be confronted before it is too late.

In my opinion.....no more Wind turbines should be built on shore until the viability of the off shore Wind turbines has been examined. The Dutch are now building their Wind turbines out at sea.

Update 2007 :The Dutch are now saying that even the offshore wind turbines are not reliable !

THERE IS ANOTHER "GREEN" ALTERNATIVE TO ONSHORE TURBINES..TIDAL POWER. THERE ARE PROPOSALS FOR A TEN MILE LONG LAGOON OFF RHYL NORTH WALES, WHICH WILL SUPPLY POWER TO THE NATIONAL GRID. THE LAGOON WILL GENERATE THE POWER USING TIDAL POWER..WHICH UNLIKE THE WIND IS RELIABLE AND GUARANTEED. FEW PLACES IN THE WORLD ARE LUCKY ENOUGH TO BE ABLE TO PRODUCE POWER THIS WAY SO I HOPE THE PROJECT GETS UP AND RUNNING QUICKLY , BEFORE THE NATIONAL PARKS ARE COVERED IN WIND TURBINES...DESTROYING FOR EVER THE BEAUTY OF WALES.
