Since March 2018 our Project Team has been engaged in door to door consultation in the area’s closest to the proposed development (within approximately 2km) and a mailout was issued to the wider area (up to 5km).
We have met with local community groups such as:
Carrignavar, Cloghvoolia / Nagle Mountains, Glenville, Mourneabbey, Rathduff, Whitechurch & Waterloo
In response to community feedback we hosted three community ‘open-evenings’ to present information on the following project areas: Noise, Visual impact, Environment, Traffic and transportation, Grid and energy storage, and Community benefit.
These took place at:
Wednesday, 28th November 2018 – Holy Family Centre, Glenville – 5pm to 9pm
Friday, 30th November – Mourneabbey Community Hall – 5pm to 9pm
Wednesday, 5th December – Whitechurch Community Centre – 5pm to 9pm
Public Information Sessions
The project team will be holding further public information sessions on the key technical aspects of the proposed project including Noise, Visual Impact, Ecology, Traffic and Transportation, Grid, Energy Storage and Community Benefit.
The public information sessions will take place as follows:
Tuesday, 8th October 2019 – Mourneabbey Community Hall – 6pm to 9pm
Thursday, 10th October 2019 – Holy Family Centre, Glenville – 6pm to 9pm
Interested parties are invited to call in anytime during these hours to meet with the Coom Green Energy Park Project Team who will be available to provide details about the proposed project. Fehily Timoney and Company are assisting in the preparation of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), as well as the planning application, and will also have representatives present to provide information.
We encourage people to contact and seek advice and information from independent public bodies with an expertise in relation to renewable energy projects. See below a list of some organisations that can provide independent information on renewable energy projects.
