discussed that the Board ruled it went out action with the Meath County Development Plan relating to such issues as traveler, cultural elements and safeguarded views.

farm has really been roundly declined by the across the country preparation authority. This is really welcome news for the lots of
people in North Meath who have in fact been combating the Component Power propositions for the last number of years, “said Deputy Byrne. “The Castletownmoor preparation application followed on from a formerly decreased application for 46 wind turbines. This modified Castletownmoor application was just a rehash of
the initial Emlagh job, which got considerable opposition from the regional community. The Castletownmoor wind farm included 25 wind turbines spread out throughout North Meath with a concept height of 169 metres.” It is thought about by An Bord Pleanala that a windfarm of this scale would aesthetically manage this rural inhabited location, would seriously injure the functions of home, would hinder the character of the landscape and would not be in accordance with the overall objectives of the Meath County Advancement Technique.” An Bord Pleanála’s report mentions that the range of the proposed turbines to a large number of houses would contrast suitable planning and sustainable development.
