Wind farm bosses and Council in legal battle over new turbine  

Credit:  Donegal Daily | September 5, 2013 | ~~

Exclusive: A Donegal Co Council Enforcement order has been served on the directors of Loughderryduff windfarm, Conal Shovlin, John Gillespie, Inge Buckley and Peter Mc Ardle.

This was served yesterday and was attached to the entrance gate of the controversial windfarm between Ardara and Glenties.

However we understand the directors are set the launch a legal challenge to the council’s move after being told they didn’t have seek planning permission.

The enforcement order relates to the erection of a wind turbine without planning permission.

The work on this development commenced on Monday but immediately ran into difficulties when the lorry containing part of the turbine tower slid into the verge on the narrow country road at The Tullies”.

It is understood that another lorry containing another part of the turbine was involved in a road traffic accident in France en route to Donegal.

The turbine is currently partially erected.

The enforcement notice at the site orders the “said development to cease immediately” and “remove the unauthorised wind turbine in its entirety including all constituent parts from the subject site”.

However North West Wind Ltd has told its investors in a memo that the work at the site is “repair work” and legal advice given to it was that planning permission was NOT required.

Sources say the issue could now become embroiled in the courts.
