TippFehily Timoney & Company (FTC) are delighted to note the shortlisting of the Tipperary County Council’s Renewable Energy Scheme in the Irish Planning Institute 2017/2018 Planning Awards. The scheme is shortlisted under the plan making category which represents the best projects of the art and science of spatial planning in the Country.   FTC developed the Wind Energy Strategy (WES) element of the overall scheme, and in conjunction with CAAS were involved in undertaking an update of the Landscape Character Assessment (LCA) for the County to determine the capacity of each landscape area to accommodate wind energy development.

 

The WES has replaced the previous Wind Energy Strategies of the North Tipperary and South Tipperary County Development Plans. The aim of this Strategy is to build upon its predecessors and develop an updated, county-wide tool for identifying potentially suitable locations for wind energy development and to guide future assessment of wind energy planning applications in the county. The Strategy also takes account of new technologies in wind energy development that have evolved since previous strategies were prepared.

The Irish Planning Institute will be announcing the winner on the 8th of February 2018.
