Proposals for wind farms off the coast of Wicklow are to be fast-tracked under new Government plans to ramp up the production of renewable energy. The two phases of the Codling offshore wind farm project and Innology Renewables’ planned ‘Dublin Array’ windfarm at the Bray and Kish banks have been named as ‘relevant projects’. This means they will be able to apply under new marine planning rules. Hundreds of wind turbines are proposed for the Codling offshore project in the Irish Sea which is 13km off the coast between Greystones and Wicklow Town. It is spread across two sites, one of which is already consented.
