James Lawless TD has expressed his satisfaction that Kildare County Council has refused planning permission for a proposed wind farm in North West Kildare.
Permission had been sought for a 12-turbine wind farm and amenity trail in the Dunfierth area.
James commented, “The Council were of the opinion that the local road network does not have the capacity to accommodate the heavy construction traffic and that the volume of traffic and type of vehicles would therefore endanger public safety.”
“I welcome this decision. While we need to transition to renewable energy, it must be done in consultation with local communities and in tandem with the necessary improvements of infrastructure. This application has already been refused multiple times and it was unfair to revisit it on the people of north west Kildare.”
