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?
