Bord Pleanala's 4th deferral raises the big question 'WHY?'

category cork | environment | news report author Wednesday March 22, 2017 22:24author by CHASE - Cork Harbour Alliance for a Safe Environment. Report this post to the editors

Bord Pleanala have failed to meet their current deadline of 22 March for a decision on the Ringaskiddy incinerator application ( http://www.pleanala.ie/casenum/PA0045.htm ) and are to defer for a fourth time in order to request further information from the applicant, Indaver Ireland. No new date has been set.

CHASE is infuriated by this latest extension and questions the credibility of a process that minimises time given to the community to thoroughly examine an application while granting extra time to the developer first to prepare the application and then to correct it.


  • Following the 2011 refusal, Indaver opened pre-consultation talks ( http://www.pleanala.ie/casenum/PC0151.htm ) with Bord Pleanala on 30 August 2012 and lodged the application on 13 Jan, 2016.
  • A 17 day oral hearing took place in April/May 2016
    Bord Pleanala were originally scheduled to make a decision by 12 July 2016 in order to meet statutory Strategic Infrastructure guideline period of 18 weeks
  • Any requests for extra time by the community were refused with Bord Pleanala citing requirements to meet that statutory 18 week deadline
  • In July 2016 Bord Pleanala extended this deadline to 26 October, subsequently extending to 24 Jan 2017, then to 22 March and that has now been extended again


CHASE spokesperson Mary O’Leary said “We have been fighting this proposal in one form or other since 2001. It is a torturous process and this is a real kick in the teeth. Indaver have been engaged with Bord Pleanala on this application since 30 August 2012, that’s over 4 and a half years ago. We are livid. Indaver have had every chance to get their homework right, they have failed to do so and they are still being spoonfed instead of being sent home. But the real question on everybodys lips is WHY?

Why are Bord Pleanala giving Indaver the opportunity to add further information at this stage, over a year after the application was submitted, 10 months after the oral hearing closed and 8 months after the statutory decision deadline of 12 July.

Why have Bord Pleanala not returned a decision when the Department of Defence stated categorically at the Oral Hearing ( http://chasecorkharbour.com/indaver-facility-will-carry...eded/ ) that the facility would have strategic implications for the Irish State, that it would “create a flight safety hazard to Irish Air Corps helicopter operations” and that risk control measures would need to be implemented which would “impact on the Irish Air Corps’ ability to operate helicopters into Haulbowline”.

Why have Bord Pleanala not returned a decision when the final day exposed false dioxin figures ( http://chasecorkharbour.com/serious-dioxin-figure-irreg...lose/ ) in Indavers application so serious that the Inspector was forced to break and take legal advice.

Why, when there are clear grounds for a refusal, but not for a grant of permission, has the Bord failed to make a call.”

CHASE steering committee will be meeting later this week to discuss the implications of this latest delay.

Your Answer: DIRTY MONEY

joe soap's trivial extension never gets the kind of leeway offered to those with deep pockets.
Their ventures are protected by the powerful in their quest to destroy our environment in the name of short term profits.

Board Pleanala should be ashamed of their corrupt little organisation.
Selling out the environment which belongs to us all for 30 pieces of silver into the appropriate few sweaty palms no doubt.
Generations of kids will breathe in high levels of dioxins through their formative years from this one blinkered decision.
And the excess capacity will mean Ireland becomes a rubbish dump for richer countries.
Politicians with vision would see Ireland as a clean healthy destination for tourists, with green energy, good organic food and a centre for organic farming.
Our useless gombeens see it as a rubbish tip for europe, a testbed for GM franken foods, and potentially a site for a lucrative (for them!) nuclear energy plant.

With euro "friends" like Juncker and native politicians like Coveney and Noonan in the pocket of the Bilderbergers, we're royally screwed.
