SSE Renewables wants to install 36 turbines in the Sperrin mountains near Draperstown, the BBC has reported.

The project known, as the Doraville Wind Farm, could provide 115 MW of power.

The planning application also states that minor works would be needed to roads in the area to facilitate turbine delivery.

Twenty five of the turbines would have a maximum height of 140m, with the other 11 having a maximum height of 126.5m.
