High Court quashes planning for windfarm

The High Court has quashed a Bord Pleanála planning permission for six large industrial wind turbines in West Cork.

Overturning the Board’s decision, Mr Justice Michael Peart agreed with local residents that the Board had acted unlawfully in giving approval for the 100m high turbines at Réidh na nDoirí, Ballingeary.

Joe Noonan of Noonan Linehan Carroll Coffey, solicitor for the successful residents, welcomed the verdict, saying: ‘There has been a rush to permit wind power generation plants in quiet rural areas across the country. Rushed planning is bad planning and that can cause serious harm to people.

‘New planning guidelines for industrial wind turbines are long overdue. Meanwhile communities and private individuals have the worry and expense of taking Court action to protect their homes and their way of life. Planning policy is unbalanced. Policy makers need to think again.’
