A local development group are challanging the permission granted to build a wind farm overlooking one of the most scenic areas of West Cork.
An Bórd Pleanala have notified out legal team that they will NOT challenge the Judicial Review
Such a brilliant outcome
Thanks so much to everyone that supported the cause
We are thrilled
An Bord Pleanála granted permission for the 178m-high windfarm by overturning Cork County Council's refusal of permission , and ignored the advice of their own Senior Inspector.
What does the wind farm include
The planned development would involve the construction of the biggest wind turbines ever proposed for County Cork. Supporting infrastructure would include a 38kV electricity substation, battery banks, quarries, deforestation, access roads, site drainage and widening of an access junction on the Shehy Mountains overlooking Gougane Barra and the Pass of Keimaneigh
What we need to do to prevent this development
Following legal advice, local community members have decided to apply to the high court for judicial review of this controversial decision through the local Ballingeary development group, Coiste Forbartha Béal Átha’n Ghaorthaidh CLG.
