first_imgA DUBLIN company’s bid to plant 12 massive wind turbines in the hills of Donegal has been turned down today.Sinn Fein and some independents voted against the plans, Labour abstained.Several Fianna Fail councillors voted in favour of the plans for the turbines which were to be located between Lough Derg and the N15 Donegal Town-Ballybofey Road. Councillors voted on the issue today – with 15 voting in favour, five against with two abstentions.However because two-thirds of councillors failed to back the development (21 were required) the motion fell.The application was made by Eco Wind Power Limited from Santry, Dublin.The turbines would have been 70 metres high – with a rotar blade mesauring 84 metres. A large number of environmental groups had opposed the plans which had been first submitted in 2010.County planners had recommended permission be granted subject to a number of conditions. DUBLIN COMPANY’S BID FOR 12 MASSIVE WIND TURBINES ‘REJECTED’ BY COUNCIL was last modified: June 25th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img
