An Bórd Pleanála has ruled that a proposed development of seven wind turbines in North Kerry is not strategic infrastructure.

Ballynagare Wind Farm Ltd originally engaged in pre-application consultation with An Bórd Pleanála about the proposed development of 10 turbines north of Lixnaw.

The turbines, located at Dysert Marshes, Curraghcroneen and Ballynagare, would have an output of 5.6 megawatts each, or 56 megawatts in total, above the 50MW threshold to be classed as strategic infrastructure development.

However, Ballynagare Wind Farm Ltd revised its plans last month, now proposing three fewer turbines, with a total output of approximately 42MW.

An Bórd Pleanála has ruled the proposed development does not constitute strategic infrastructure, and so an application for planning must first be made to Kerry County Council.
