Planning permission has finally been granted for 12 wind turbines in Rasharkin and Dunloy.
The news was revealed during a recent Ballymoney Borough Council meeting, after members heard that the application had to be ‘adapted’.
The Planner explained: “The plans were for Long Mountain, in the townland of Granagh in Rasharkin and Glenbuck in Dunloy.
“Amendment to the original proposal to include amended layout for the erection of 12 wind turbines (2.3mw) (previously 16 turbines) with a maximum overall height 100.5m (previously 120.5m) associated transformers, substation, upgrade of existing tracks, create new tracks (888m), gates, cabling, crane hard standing and all associated ancillary.”
Two objections were received, however the plans also received 98 supporters.
