Meath Conservation Officer rubber stamps Laytown mast – says it fits with “industrial landscape” in Laytown

We thought locals would want to see the comments of the Meath Conservation Officer on the proposed 24m mast that is under consideration by An Bord Pleanála.

The officer said:

“As the station, station masters house, railway line, overhead light industry and track bridge that already exist are inherent industrial structures, I have no objection to the addition of a 24-meter telecommunications Monopole, a modern industrial addition to the already industrial landscape that exists around this protected structure.”

It will come as something as a revelation to locals in East Meath that Laytown, a quiet sea-side village, is an “industrial landscape”. Are we missing something?
