To appoint a consultant to undertake a feasibility study on the Martin farm, accessing the viability of either a wind turbine or a solar PV tem at the proposed site.


Francis and Peter Martin are a father-son partnership who own over 90 acres of land outside Banbridge. The farm has been in the family for generations, and Francis Martin has worked the land for over 50 years and his son Peter for 8. Having identified a potential site on the farm to install a wind turbine, Francis was keen to further investigate the viability of such a project.
