Indaver to lodge fresh application

 

Waste company Indaver last night announced it had withdrawn its judicial review of a refusal by An Bord Pleanála to grant planning permission for its €160 million twin incinerator project in Cork and it will instead lodge a fresh planning application for the project.

Indaver said it had decided to withdraw its judicial review which was due to begin in the High Court on Tuesday after it obtained a report by Cork County Council.

Managing director John Ahern said the 146-page council report made it clear that the need for the Indaver project in Ringaskiddy was “greater than ever” and the company would now pursue this through a fresh planning application to An Bord Pleanála.

“We were always convinced of the region’s need for our facility.”

The council’s evaluation is an important development, particularly given that the existing waste plan was one of the key reasons cited by An Bord Pleanála in its original refusal to grant permission.
