A windfarm is in the pipelines for Ballina. A planning application was submitted to the Council at the end of last year to construct a 29.9mw farm consisting of 13 turbines with a 64 metre hub height at Carrowleagh, Ballina.
Permission is also sought for access roads to each turbine in addition to upgrade of existing roads, substation building and temporary contractors compound.
Applicants Joseph, Martin and Michael Loftus, with an address in Charlestown, can expect a decision from planners on the project at the end of February.
