A decision is due in November.

Planning appeals have been lodged against two proposed 100 metre meteorological masts in Roscommon.

Energia Renewables Ireland Limited had successfully applied to County Planners for the developments at the Skeavally and Cronin Townlands in Roscommon.

The plans each include a 100 metre guy-wired latticed mast with associated foundations and services.

Roscommon County Council approved the plans with 10 conditions attached at the Skeavalley site and 9 at the Cronin Townland location.

These include that the planning permission is granted for just 2 years from the final decision and that the Irish Aviation Authority be informed of the development and a suitable anti-collision beacon installed on the infrastructure.

Planning appeals have now been lodged against both applications by Wind Turbine Action Group South Roscommon.

Their objections include concerns over the mast's possible detrimental effect to the environment and damage it may cause to the local visual amenity.

An Bord Pleanála will decide on both objections in November.
