Planning Controls

The planning process for re-powering or new installations requires a range of surveys and includes but is not limited to Bat Surveys (which are seasonal i.e. April to September/October), Noise Impact Assessments and Shadow Flicker Reports, even if the turbine is operating.

Planning history will also form a material consideration. The applicant is required to demonstrate that the proposal will not result in a detrimental impact.

FENI has been working with TC Town Planning since 2011 who prepare and oversee turbine planning applications.

For Site Feasibility and/or submission of full applications to Council, please contact FENI.

Farm Energy NI is taking the spread of Coronavirus extremely seriously. Our number one priority remains the safety and well being of our employees and customers.

Our staff team is working from home but they are otherwise available as normal. The FENI office is closed but calls to it will be redirected and answered. Face-to-face meetings and networks events have been suspended and we are carrying out our correspondence through calls, emails and online conversations.

We are staying well informed of the developing situation and are following the advice and recommendations from the Government, relevant Public Health bodies and the World Health Organisation.

Current government advice defines energy generation as an “essential service” under the heading of “utilities, communication and financial services”. This means that NIE Networks, OFGEM & the Power Companies will continue to operate to the best of their abilities to ensure all power and export transactions are not interrupted.

If your generating site is being managed by our associates, Realise Energy Services, their engineers are continuing to service and maintain customers’ turbines to ensure their safe operation as part of the UK energy network and respond to unscheduled events as needed.

We will continue to monitor the situation and to be guided by advice from the appropriate authorities. We will also be doing our best to stay in touch with our members. If you have any questions, concerns or just like a chat we are here for you at this difficult time. Keep safe and keep well.
