A foreshore licence granted for expansion of an offshore wind farm near Arklow now faces a High Court challenge from an environmentalist and planning activist, as The Irish Times reports.

Peter Sweetman — whose previous objections include the proposals for a sea wall at US President Donald Trump’s Doonbeg golf resort — claims the purpose of the licence for site investigation works is to expand the current Arklow Bank Wind Park site from seven up to as many as 200 offshore wind turbines.

He also calls for ministerial decisions which resulted in the licence being granted to be quashed, arguing that they go against the EU Habitats Directive.
