The mast resort: Developers challenge council’s refusal to allow giant telecoms tower in Kilkenny village

A telecoms company has appealed the decision by Kilkenny Council to refuse planning permission for a 50ft high mast near the centre of a local village.

On October Eircom Limited sought permission to erect a 16-metre-high, free-standing communications mast close to the centre of Kells.

Earlier this month Kilkenny Council planners ruled the development would be “very obtrusive” in such a rural village and refused permission.

Eircom have now appealed the decision to An Bord Pleanála

The national telecoms provider had hoped to erect the 50ft mast with associated antennae, communication dishes, ground equipment and “all associated site development works” at the Eircom Exchange on Haggard Road in Kells.

The council rejected the application. It expressed concern that “the proposed development is located in an area where the site is in close proximity to existing dwellings in a rural village”, where it said masts and antennae should only be located “as a last resort”.

The council added: “The location is not the most suitable and would be very obtrusive and detract from the amenities of the area.”

A decision from An Bord Pleanála is expected before the end of April.
