A review of the 2006 wind guidelines was initiated over 4 years ago in early 2013, and put to public consultation in late 2013, it included changing a notional 500 Metre set-back distance in the 2006 guidelines to a mandatory 500 Metres.

Following on from these processes many plenary cases have been undertaken in the High Court and the State itself is now being co-joined as defendants in many legal instances. For example, the day after the key developments were announced Cork based
