Councillors angered over 'objector' label

Updated: Jan 2, 2019

'Protectors of the People' vote in favour of changing wind energy strategy to make West Waterford a 'no-go' area for wind turbines.


The anger was palpable at the June plenary meeting of Waterford City and County council, as eight Councillors who were labelled as 'objectors' by a wind energy company, proposed a Notice of Motion to change the wind energy strategy map of the County Development Plan to make the Knockanore / Tallow area a 'no go' for wind turbines.

Standing Orders were suspended at the County meeting in City Hall Waterford, last Thursday evening to hear the emergency Notice of Motion, which lasted nearly 50 minutes of the meeting.


The motion by proposed by Cllr James Tobin, who said he was 'in a far worse temper than I was in yesterday' over German energy company (Innogy Renewables Ireland Ltd.) proposing to put a large scale wind farm 'into the parish'.
