A few facts relating to the campaign:

  • The licence has been granted for 16 hectares. 1 hectare is 100 metres approximately, which means that the farm will extend for 1,600 metres across the beaches which is 1.6 kilometres.
  • A licence was stopped in Scotland for a 57 acre farm. The developer estimated that it would contain 21,420 trestles. Using this as a guideline the Linsfort farm could end up with approx 14,844 trestles along our beach
  • The licence is costing €63.49 per year i.e. €634.90 for the 10 year licence.
