Nenagh company says everyone welcome to discuss wind turbine proposal

Procter and Gamble’s decision to invite only some of the residents around the Dromin Road area to meetings on its proposal to build a wind turbine to the rear of its Nenagh plant has been criticised.

The company held meetings with residents along Gortlandroe, Richmond and Dromin Road in the past three weeks. However, one resident of Droim na Coille, has questioned the strategy, asking whether it might be a “divide and conquer” policy.

In a letter to this week’s Tipperary Star, they ask: “Why were the residents of Droim na Coille, just off the Dromin Road not invited to this meeting? Surely the proposed siting of a wind turbine on that site affects the residents of Droim na Coille equally as much as those on Dromin Road. Residents of Richmond were invited to a similar meeting. Is this the divide and conquer approach being devised by the proposers of this development?”

A P&G spokesperson told the Tipperary Star that they would not stop anyone from Droim na Coille from attending any of the meetings. The spokesperson said that if anyone in the estate wanted to discuss the proposal they could contact the company and they would have no problem going through the plan with them.

They said the company had taken a visual from the entrance to Droim na Coille, but did not include it because you could not see the turbine site from there. The eyeline of the turbine would be blocked by large trees and some buildings.

They had looked at a radius of seven or eight rotor dimensions range and had decided to include properties that were up to 750 metres away from the site.

The company held a meeting this Tuesday night with the residents of Richmond, Kilnasallagh, Ardan Rua and Gortlandroe to provide extra information on the visual impact the turbine will have on the area. This included three new visuals from Dromin Road. They said the only request they had from Dromin Road residents was for maps of the turbine’s exact location.
