Ancillary structures are planned to include an 85m meteorological mast, substation compound with control house close at the Derreen entrance, internal road network and associated drainage features, two borrow pits, underground cabling, temporary construction site compound close to the Derreen entrance and associated works are included.

One wind turbine delivery entrance from the Toon road and one light vehicle access from the Inchigeela/ Reidh na nDoiri road at Derreen are outlined on the maps. Both entrances are to have planning notices.
