Mitchell meets with Codling Wind Farm Staff and asks for visual impact to be reduced.

I am concerned that the  Codling and Wind farms meeting off Greystones mean that this will have the biggest visual imposition of any place in Ireland and almost any place in the UK. Currently the plans are for turbines, taller than Bray Head, from Dun Laoghaire to Wicklow Town close to the coast.

I recently met with the Senior management of Codling wind farm and stated that a substantial gap should be left between the two wind farms to reduce the visual impact. They are now working on the placing of the turbines but gave no commitment to leave a substantial gap. I will be asking Bord Pleanala to insist on a gap when they apply for permission.
