COMMUNITY THE ONLY ENTITY TO WHOM DEADLINES SEEM TO APPLY
A decision by An Bord Pleanala on the planning application by Indaver Ireland to build a 240,000 tonne hazardous and municipal waste incinerator at Ringaskiddy Co Cork has been extended again with the case now scheduled for a decision by 24 January 2017.
Following a month long Oral Hearing at the Carrigaline Court Hotel (19 April – 17 May 2016), the decision deadline was originally set for 12 July 2016 to meet Strategic Infrastructure Application guidelines, but was extended by An Bord Pleanala in July to 26 October 2016 on the grounds of the complexity of the case.
CHASE Chairperson Mary O’Leary said “We are completely perplexed at the ongoing extensions. We fully recognise that it is a complex case, indeed that is why we requested extensions to the minimal time the community was given to prepare submissions, however our requests were declined on the basis of the July 12 deadline. It would appear clear now that the community is the only entity in this planning process on whom compliance with deadlines is being implemented.”
