Bord na Móna has published the revised layout for the proposed Derryadd Wind Farm. The revised proposal, for which the company intend to seek planning permission in late summer/early autumn 2023, comprises 22 turbines with an overall blade tip height of 190 metres above ground level. It is also intended to construct a substation to facilitate access to the National Grid for the proposed development.
The proposed wind farm will consist of approximately 25km of internal road network, approximately 18km of which is intended for amenity use when the wind farm becomes operational. An additional c.7.5km of dedicated amenity trackway is also proposed to provide connectivity to local roads and allow local access to the wind farm amenity. The additional amenity track will also provide linkages between the wind farm internal road network and the royal canal greenway (to the east), the Corlea Visitor Centre and amenity areas (to the south), and wider proposed Mid-Shannon Wilderness Park Area.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who attended the Community Engagement Sessions which took place on the 29th and 30th of June 2022 and the 5th and 6th of July 2022.
In recent months, the project team has been advancing the design of the proposed development and now wishes to consult the local community about the proposed draft layout for the wind farm. In order to get your feedback on the proposed development, including any queries and concerns you may have on the project, a series of Community Engagement Sessions have been organised. For details, please see the ‘Public Event’s section below.
