ESB to appeal council refusal for major development windfarm at Ballintra  

Credit:  Highland Radio | 06 Sep 2013 | www.highlandradio.com ~~

ESB wind development Limited is appealing a decision by Donegal County Council to refuse it permission to construct a major wind farm in South Donegal.

ESB wind development Limited sought a ten year planning permission for the development consisting seven wind turbines, access tracks, transformer station and all associated site works.

Each wind turbine would have an overall maximum of 135 metres in height with with three blades of up to 50 metres attached.

An number of objections were lodged on grounds which included the proximity of the turbines to homes, the noise they would generate and the general impact the development would have on a quiet scenic area.

ESB International is listed as both the Applicant and the Appellant in the appeal – a bord decision is due next January.
