Project Description

This project will support the development of the bioenergy sector in Ireland addressing a key barrier, in terms of moving through planning, consistently highlighted as an impediment to the sector. This research intends to address a number of areas relating to the town planning implications associated with the development of bioenergy developments in Ireland. The project team will develop planning guidance recommendations following an assessment of third party planning objections lodged against proposed bioenergy schemes in urban and rural contexts to understand the key issues and obstacles.
