Time afforded ‘kick in the teeth’

A group against the incinerator has criticised the time afforded to Indaver in this planning process.

Cork Harbour for A Safe Enviroment (CHASE) believes that the track record of accuracy in this application means that the vested options and “expertise of Indaver and their consultants must be taken with a pinch of salt”. CHASE Chair Mary O’Leary said: “Indaver have been engaged with An Bord Pleanála since August 2012, which is adequate time to submit a comprehensive and correct submission. “The extended time afforded to Indaver to both correct their figures and address Dept of Defence concerns is a real kick in the teeth for those who scrambled to make submissions on the huge volume of material submitted by Indaver in January 2016, material it turned out was not even correct.”That Indaver’s application was “not true enough” to be considered by the Bord without correction, should in CHASE’s opinion have merited rejection, not an opportunity for correction. Logic would dictate, CHASE says, either rejectionnow or a further opportunity for observers to revise their submissions based on revised material.
