Mocraig ‘refusal’

PLANNERS are of the opinion to refuse plans for a wind turbine on a farm near Bushmills.

The applicant is Mr Stevan Mooney and the location is 150 metres west of 111 Moycraig Road.

The application was for a 250kw wind turbine at 32 metres hub height for farm and grid.

Planners say the development would, if permitted, have an unacceptable adverse impact on the visual amenity of the Giant’s Causeway World Heritage Site.

They added it has not been demonstrated that there would not be a detrimental impact on adjacent properties by reason of noise impact.
