Tipperary County Council say they will investigate “any valid complaints” about planning for Monaincha windfarm, while saying proper process was followed.

A planning official told the Leinster Express that a valid application was received by North Tipperary County Council in February 2009.

“A site notice was adequately displayed”, and a newspaper notice was published in the Irish Independent the same month.

Further information was requested in April 2009, and given by Element Power that September.

“Notification of a decision to grant planning permission issued on 12/11/09. The decision was not appealed to An Bord Pleanala and a final grant of permission issued on 17/12/09,” the council said.
