The government's latest round of subsidised contracts for renewable energy projects contained in the fifth round of Non Fossil Fuel Obligation schemes have been greeted with alarm by the CPRW.
The campaign director Merfyn Williams said: 'This is exactly what we feared would happen when we first took the controversial decision to oppose these projects which damaged the landscape.
'I appeal to members and supporters and to all those who value are most precious heartland to help us put pressure on local planning committees to resist this threat. Local councils have a duty to protect this asset and need every encouragement to do so.'
The CPRW's assistant director, Jenny Smith, added: 'We are not opposed to wind energy itself but the way in which these bids are being sold in a competitive way means that bidders go for the windiest spot - these often tend to be the most scenic area of Wales.'
