Litir Chumhdaigh

Cliona Geraghty and family. Concerned with the inappropriate proposal of Castlebanny wind farm and the consideration of the area and environs of south Kilkenny as deemed suitable for wind energy production.

Observations

I object to any classification of the immediate and extended locality as suitable or "Acceptable in principle" for wind energy production

I object to any classification of the immediate and extended locality as suitable or "Acceptable in principle" for wind energy production

Main opinion: 

It is a well established fact that wind energy sources are most productive offshore and/or in the direct and uninterrupted path of the prevailing wind. Not only is the path of air obstructed by the Comeragh mountains, but also the rolling landscape that faces the proposed site. Such proposals are disruptive to biodiversity and human life in the area and this particular proposal has not been fully communicated to the residents in terms of any allowable adjustment to the proposed location of each turbine unit.

Main requests: 

Objection to Castlebanny wind farm

Main reasons: 

Biodiversity, noise, property devaluation, health implications, no consultation with residents in terms of location of turbine units, no clear communication of project management throughout project and facility life cycle.
