- Chronic Sleep Deprivation.
- Noise Pollution (Wind Turbines generate constant noise output).
- Devaluation in the Price of Property within a 3km radius.
- Falling-out between Friends and Neighbours.
- Shadow Flicker is the effect of the sun (low on the horizon) shining through the rotating blades of a wind turbine, casting moving shadow. It will be perceived as a ‘Flicker’ due to the rotating blades repeatedly casting a shadow.
- Possible severe impact on vulnerable children and adults on the spectrum due to distraction, noise, and shadow flicker.
- Road network in this area is substandard for large scale industrial activity.
- Loss of our beautiful living space to an industrial landscape. Disruption to water supply as blasting for massive groundworks can disrupt delicate water table.
- Wind Farm developers promise community fund, which is of little benefit if the community has been shattered.
- Loss of habitat for birds of prey, and bats, who are very susceptible to disturbance and death by turbine collision.
- Loss of any future tourism related projects for our community thereby damaging our children’s potential to make a living locally.
- Transportation of a single 62 metre blade, each turbine has three, giving you an idea of the enormous size of these behemoth machines.
- We would encourage people who live in the area to contact an auctioneer to place a current valuation of their property. This may assist in addressing any damages in court in the event of the development going ahead.
- Landowners are not aware of the impact on their lands due to signing away their rights for access, whole fields will need reshaping, ditches destroyed, road layouts altered. Local infrastructure that could not have been imagined will need to be carried out to allow for the positioning of turbines.
- These huge moving machines, not only generate noise and vibrations; they must also be topped with flashing lights, night and day, to increase their visibility.
Circulated by residents of Castlewarren, Ballasallagh, Cassagh, Castlecreen, Coolmarks, Coolgreany, Flagmount, Freynestown, Knockadeen, Grange Hill, Ossoryhill and Revanagh who have come together to halt the sighting of industrial wind turbines in close proximity to family homes in our community by speculative developers and landowners, also to protect and preserve the unique scenic beauty of this area and to sustain our rural environment and the habitats within.
Please get in contact to see how you can help as part of a group, we have regular zoom meetings where issues can be discussed.
