Appeal over planned windfarm in Clonfert

Concerns have been raised over plans for a windfarm in Lisbeg in the Clonfert area.

A ten year permission for the project was approved by county planners in October subject to 24 conditions.

The project is led by Frank O Domhnaill and Richard Bourns.

It would see the provision of up to 5 wind turbines, new internal access roads and the upgrading of existing roads to facilitate delivery of abnormal loads.

In an appeal to An Bord Pleanala, locals have raised concerns regarding the development.

The group has submitted an independent scientific review of ecology in the Environmental Impact Statement, Natura Impact Statement and further information document.

The case is due to be decided in March 2017.
