A plan to erect wind turbines in Co Waterford is being withdrawn because of considerable local opposition to the proposal.
In a statement, BSB Community Energy said:
“In view of the feedback from the consultation process, the local campaign of opposition, the lack of local support, the committee is advising that the current windfarm proposal will not be proceeding any further. The committee has listened to the local feelings on the project. The current project is also not compliant given the proposed changes in the planning guidelines. The committee has also sought and received the professional advice of project partners. We will be communicating further with the project stakeholders and the wider community over the next few weeks.”
