Castlefinn digester refusal appealed to An Bord Pleanala

An Bord Pleanala

A Donegal County Council decision to refuse permission for an Anaerobic Digester in Castlefinn has been appealed to An Bord Pleanala.

Glenmore Estate Aghaveagh NW had sought permission for the construction of the commercial Anaerobic Digester with a view to producing renewable energy.

Donegal County Council refused permission stating the development would be prejudicial to residential amenity and would conflict with the enjoyment of the amenities of the wider area.

The County Development plan has provision to facilitate the appropriate development of renewable energy from a variety of sources but the council decided this development did not meet that criteria.

An Bord Pleanala will now have the final say with a decision due in July.
