Three days of events will take place next week in south Roscommon.

Face-to-face public consultations on a plan for a major wind farm in south Roscommon are due to get underway next week.

Three days of clinics have been organised by the developers of the wind project near Dysart.

There was disappointment earlier this month after it was confirmed that Energia, and Galetech Energy Developments intend to proceed with their plans for the 'Seven Hills Windfarm project' despite significant local opposition.

20 turbines in total are due to be built as part of the project if planning is approved, including 13 near Taughmaconnell and seven near Dysart.

The plans, likely to be submitted in the next two months, are to be sent directly to An Bord Pleanala through the Strategic Infrastructure Development process

In advance of that, Energia, and Galetech Energy Developments (GED) have announced three days of face-to-face clinics by appointment for members of the community to meet the Seven Hills Windfarm project team

Anyone wishing to meet the project team should telephone the freephone number 1800-140-232 in advance to book a face-to-face appointment, stating their preferred time slot and attendees will be asked to arrive no earlier than five minutes before their scheduled appointment.
