A document released as part of the legal proceedings between Indaver Ireland and An Bord Pleanála regarding Indaver’s Waste-to-Energy facility at Ringaskiddy has caused the company to change its tack. This document was released under Access to Information on the Environment Regulations and is an evaluation by Cork County Council of its existing waste management plan. The Council state in the evaluation that its existing waste strategy ‘is no longer relevant’.
‘We were always convinced that the plan did not meet the waste management needs of the region. The evaluation now demonstrates this to be the case and opens the way for the company to reapply for planning permission. The existing waste plan was one of the major reasons An Bord Pleanála refused planning permission. Other reasons cited have been solved by the company’, stated John Ahern, Managing Director Indaver Ireland.
In order to progress the project the company has therefore decided not to pursue the Judicial Review proceedings it brought against An Bord Pleanála.
