Revised layout for proposed Wind Farm

Bord na Móna has announced details of the publication of its revised layout for the proposed Derryadd Wind Farm in Co. Longford.

  The revised layout reviewed setback distances, height of turbines and subsequently the number of turbines against the new draft criteria outlined in the Preferred Draft Approach to wind energy development in Ireland.

  The revised layout consists of 24 turbines compared to the previous design of 28 turbines and initial design of 29 turbines.

  Over the coming days, Bord na Móna’s Community Liaison Officer will be calling to residents adjacent to the proposed development to provide them with a copy of the revised layout. It is envisaged that the planning application will be lodged in mid-2018 to the relevant planning authority.
