The project being considered
An area to the north of Coole in Co Westmeath was identified as having potential for the development of a suitable and appropriate wind farm development. Design works, surveys and consultation with the local community is ongoing with the view to identifying how a project may best work in this area and bring the most benefit to the local community.
Following assessment of various geographical areas and possibilities over the past number of years this area was identified as having the potential for a wind energy development. This area is based around the boglands of Doon, Camagh and Clonsura. A study area was established and initial design layout proposed. Following this, we began consulting with the local community, the local authority and relevant stakeholders in order to obtain their thoughts and views on our proposals. The feedback gathered helped inform the design team and influence the form of the project as it developed.
We are now in a position to propose a revised project design.
