127 objections and submissions on controversial Nenagh wind turbine plan

The National Roads Authority, the Irish Aviation Authority and the Mid West Regional Authority are among those who have lodged objections or observations on the proposed wind turbine at Coolaholliga.

The turbine, which would be 131 metres at it highest point, is being sought by Procter & Gamble to help cut its energy needs.

In total, there were 127 objections lodged against the turbine, with the vast majority of them coming from residents in the immediate area. A further 644 signed a petition against the proposal.

This week, Nenagh Wind Turbine Opposition Group said in a statement that by making these submissions and signing the petition residents had “made their voices heard”. The group thanked all of those who lodged submissions and signed the petition opposing the proposed development.

“This is a clear signal to the company that local residents are not in favour of siting the proposed wind energy development at this location, so close to residential areas,” they said.

The statment pointed out that the group was in favour of wind turbines in suitable areas and supported harvesting energy from sustainable sources. They acknowledged the announcement by IKEA to buy a wind farm in Leitrim to power its stores in Dublin and Belfast.

“P&G said last July that they wanted to inform local residents of their wind energy proposal so as to be ‘a good neighbour’ within the local community. Isn’t it time now, therefore, that as a good neighbour they listen to what their peers have to say?” they said. “What we ask is for Procter & Gamble to move their proposed wind turbine to a remote location, similar to the approach taken by IKEA.”
