Ob­jec­tion to big­gest ever wind tur­bines

Irish Examiner - - News -

En­vi­ron­men­tal­ists have lodged an ob­jec­tion with Cork County Coun­cil’s plan­ning of­fice against plans for what they say will be the big­gest ever wind tur­bines pro­posed for Co Cork. Win­gleaf Ltd has ap­plied for plan­ning for seven 178.5 me­tre high tur­bines with sup­port­ing in­fra­struc­ture on the Shehy Moun­tains over­look­ing Guagán Barra and the Pass of Keimaneigh.

The Mac­room District En­vi­ron­men­tal group say the tur­bines will be about two-and-a-half times the height of the tallest build­ings in Ire­land.

The group have also cited con­cerns about the project’s im­pact on the land­scape and on wildlife.
