15th December 2006: WESTERN POWER CHALLENGES CCW!
Western Power has challenged the Countryside Council for Wales' (CCW) designation of the reservoir embankments as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) for grassland fungi. Despite overwhelming evidence that it is a site of international importance for these fungi on all published criteria, Western Power continues to argue that it should not be designated as an SSSI because better sites may yet be found. They have taken CCW to judicial review in the High Court in London. The outcome should be known early in the new year. Further details can be found on the BBC web site by clicking here.
