CONCERNED residents on a quiet road fear construction work could make their lives a misery.
DONG Energy is hoping to carry out three months of hydraulic drilling on a site off the Coast Road, near Rhyl Golf Club, as part of onshore substation work for the proposed extension of the 69 turbine Burbo Bank Wind Farm, located seven miles offshore from Point of Ayr.
Large trucks are set to use nearby Terfyn Pella Avenue to access the site and remove waste.
Resident Tina Cox, who has a 10-year-old son, fears drilling on the narrow road, which could last from 7am to 7pm up to five days a week, will cause “horrendous” noise and mess.
She said: “A lot of people are really worried about this. It is a quiet street. The noise is going to be very disruptive, so is the mud and the dust.”
Merfyn Cutting, 65, who is currently putting his father's home up for sale to pay for his care, is worried the work will impact on house prices.
He said: “It will be a massive inconvenience for residents."
Residents are calling for an access road to be built on the edge of Rhyl Golf Club and the construction site moved further from their properties.
Rhyl councillors David Simmons and Barry Mellor are set to meet with residents later this week.
Prestatyn mayor David Turner attended a recent meeting between Dong Energy and residents.
He said: “To use Terfyn Pella as an access road is silly, it is too narrow. It will make the residents' lives a misery."
A spokesperson for DONG Energy said: “DONG Energy recently met with residents of Terfyn Pella to talk about the proposed works and understand the local concerns.
“If we are granted consent and decide to go ahead and invest in the project then we will continue our engagement with communities and Denbighshire Council to minimise any disruption.”
