South Wicklow Wind Action Group

South Wicklow Wind Action Group, the Community-based sustainable development organisation has announced that due to the massive level of local opposition to the Ballymanus Industrial Wind Turbine planning application, it has decided to hold a Public Meeting in Lawless Hotel in  Aughrim this coming Friday 16th January at 8.00 p.m.

At the meeting advice and assistance will be made available to anybody who wishes to make a submission to Wicklow County Council and sample submission templates will be distributed so that those who wish to voice their opposition can do so correctly and within the specified time scale. A spokesperson for the group said that since the submission of the full  Planning Application to Wicklow County Council on 23rd `December, the last working day before the Christmas/New Year shut-down, there has been an enormous upsurge in the volume of Telephone calls, Text messages and Emails,  as well as Postings on the SWWAG Facebook page and Signatures and comments on the SWWAG On-line Petition website. These have come not only from concerned residents of the threatened area and county Wicklow generally but from individuals and groups throughout the country.

Because the vast majority of the local enquiries were from people seeking information and assistance with the submission of Objections, the Group decided the best way to meet the need and fill the Information gap was to arrange this meeting.
