Huge wind farm plan rejected  

Credit:  Donegal Democrat | 24 Mar 2016 | www.donegaldemocrat.ie ~~

An Bord Pleanála has refused planning permission for a huge 49-turbine wind farm in the Finn Valley.

The decision to refuse planning permission for the Carrickaduff wind farm was received by the parties involved in the case on Thursday morning.

Planree Limited had sought planning permission for the wind farm at Carrickaduff and other townlands stretching from close to Barnesmore gap along the border towards Killygordon.

Over 200 submissions were made on the application, which if had been granted planning permission, would have been the largest onshore wind farm in the country.

The decision took almost a year to be reached from the close of submissions and had been delayed a number of times.

Finn Valley Wind Action, which opposed the proposed development, said it was delighted that the development had been rejected.

Spokeswoman Marie Scanlon of the group told the Donegal Democrat: “As a group we welcome the decision to refuse planning permission for the 49 wind turbines in the Finn Valley. The decision has been long overdue and it has been very difficult for everyone involved in the community and we would like to acknowledge the support we received from the community and beyond.”
