Listen: North Kildare residents devastated by granting of permission for windfarm

Residents in North Kildare says they are devastated that An Bord Pleanala has overturned Kildare County Council’s decision and granted planning permission for a wind farm there.

KCC declined permission, in December, to North Kildare Wind Farms Ltd, for the project in the townlands of Ballynamullagh, Coolree, Drehid, Dunfierth, Killyon, Kilmurry and Mulgeeth.

It includes up to 12 number wind turbines with a tip height of up to 169 metres

That decision was appealed to ABP.

It has granted permission, and attached 15 conditions.

ABP has published its 100 page inspector’s report, which it takes in to consideration in making its decision.

This includes a section on the site’s planning history.

The Inspectors Report notes that the previously proposed 47 turbine Maighne Windfarm was granted permission, on appeal.

ABP refused permission for this project.

Sheila O’Brien lives in Carbury and is of the Kildare Environmental Awareness Group.

Speaking to Kildare Today, she says the inspector’s report must be withdrawn.

Sheila O’Brien joined Eoin Beatty on Kildare Today:

The inspectors report for the North Kildare Windfarm Limited application is here and ABP’s order for the application is here .Its direction is here

While the documents pertaining to the Maighne Windfarm project, including a statement by An Bord Pleanala that the project was refused permission, are available here

A statement is being sought of An Bord Pleanala.
