Group welcomes refusal of Kinnego Bay windfarm extension

kinneoge bayInishowen Wind Energy Awareness Group has welcomed the decision by An Bord Pleanala to refuse permission for an extension to a windfarm at Kinnego Bay

Donegal County Council had already refused permission for a third turbine on Crockbrack Hill and that decision was unsuccessfully appealed to ABP by the developer.

One of the reasons permission was refused is that the turbine was to be located in close proximity and in clear sight of a scenic driving section of the Wild Atlantic Way.
