This morning (31st May 2018), An Bord Pleanála granted Indaver Ireland planning permission to build an incinerator in Ringaskiddy to burn 240,000 tonnes of hazardous and non-hazardous waste each year. This is the third planning application from Indaver for an incinerator on this site. Each time, the people of Cork Harbour have fought to keep Indaver out of Cork Harbour. Each time, against all odds, they have won. This below is the link to today’s grant of planning from the Board. In doing so, they followed a trend of overturning the recommendation of their Senior Planning Inspector. Every Planning Inspector who has scrutinised this or any of the previous planning applications has said that this is the wrong site for an incinerator.
We will fight on.
