Cavan company Galetech Energy Developments are submitting a new planning application for an 8 turbine windfarm near Spink in south Laois, including a Natura Impact Statement (NIS) missing from their first application.

The company’s application for the 152m turbines had been marked invalid by Laois County Council last month, who said an NIS was required, and planning notices didn’t match up. The public have five weeks to make submissions. See www.laois.ie/planning
