The proposal to erect the wind turbine has been met with concerns among some local residents

Almost 20 submissions have been made to the local authority in relation to the construction of a wind turbine in the Kilcash area of south county Roscommon.

Natural Forces Renewable Energy is seeking to erect a 150-meter-high turbine, which is being met with opposition by residents involved in the Kilcash Wind Turbine Action group.

The company says the structure is within the set-back distance of over 600 meters from the closest dwelling.

In its project documents, the company says that nine households will experience 30 minutes a day of shadow flicker and it will fit shadow mitigation technology to the structure.

Nineteen submissions are to be considered by officials.

They include one from Peter Sweetman Planners in Dublin which states that an appropriate assessment is mandatory as the turbine could impact on Lough Ree and River Suck Callows SPAs as well as Ballinturley turlough and Lough Ree SACs.

A decision on the development is due on June 24th.
