The developer behind the wind turbines situated near Kinnego Bay has been refused permission to increase the height of the turbines by 16 metres (52 feet).

The decision has been welcomed by a local group opposed to the development who said that the proposed height (at 132 metres – 433 feet – at the tip) would be too high.

The council refused permission due to the development of the national tourist route the Wild Atlantic Way which stretches from the Donegal to West Cork.

A spokesperson for the Inishowen Wind Energy Awareness Group said that they welcomed the development.
“The Wild Atlantic Way now runs into Kinnego Bay and one of the aspects of the route has to be unspoilt view of the landscape and the seascape,” the spokesperson said.
