Save our Skibbereen : Press Release – 29th July 2019
In the High Court on 30th July 2019, An Bord Pleanala consented to the Court granting an Order of Certiorari quashing the decision of the Bord dated 29th November 2018 which had permitted the construction of a thermoplastic compounds production facility at Poundlick, Baltimore Road, Skibbereen, Co. Cork.
And it is ordered that the subject matter of the said decision be remitted to An Bord Pleanala to be decided in accordance with law.
As is normal in cases of this kind, the subject matter of the decision will be remitted by the High Court to the Bord for further consideration which may result in a request to Daly Products Limited for a Natura Impact Statement. We will be a copy party to communications between the Bord and Daly Products Limited and to any NIS and will have opportunity to challenge or object.
We are advised that it will take a year to 18 months for procedures between the Bord and Daly Products Limited to play out and that no development can be commenced in that period.
Unusually, Daly Products Limited has not engaged in any way in the current process.
An Bord Pleanala has agreed to pay our legal costs.
We remain vigilant and ready to do whatever it takes to ensure that this development will never proceed. We also take this opportunity to thank all of our supporters from Skibbereen, West Cork and beyond, who have donated to our campaign, fundraised for our campaign and helped raise awareness of our campaign in local, national and international circles.
If you have questions about this decision, please contact us as per details below and we will endeavour to respond promptly.
