Bord na Mona has signaled its intention to apply for planning retention of a wind monitoring mast in county Kildare.

It wants to extend permission by a further three years for the 100m high structure at Blackriver Bog, Lullybeg. 

The mast is to assess the suitability of the company’s adjacent lands for wind farm development.
