Council’s energy plans to be reviewed by SPC – The Mayo Advertiser

Independent councillor Seamus Weir, who has been a leading adversary of the proposed GridWest project, brought forward a motion to the October meeting of Mayo County Council calling for the council to rescind its Wind Energy Strategy Plan and to review its Renewable Energy Strategy.

Cllr Weir told the meeting: “What we did with these plans was a big mistake, we didn’t totally know what we were doing.” He also said that under the plans there could be wind farms three miles from the centre of Ballina. Cllr Weir went on to say that he was not against wind energy, but he was against the large scale industrial plans.
