Indaver Ireland Application for Two Incinerators in Cork Harbour

INDAVER, the Toxic Waste Incineration company, have made a new planning application to build TWO incinerators at Ringaskiddy, just across the road from the International Maritime College. Their original planning permission for one incinerator is due to expire on the 15th January 2009.

Indaver are applying to build a Hazardous Waste Incinerator to burn hazardous waste from wherever they can get it, either in Ireland or abroad. They also want to build a Municipal Waste Incinerator to burn domestic waste, despite the fact that this is contrary to Cork County Council’s Waste Management Plan. The Plant will be a SEVESCO TWO site due to the risk of explosions and the danger this poses to people in the area.

The application is being made under the new section of An Bord Pleanala dealing with Strategic Infrastructure. This means that the planning process is much faster and a decision is usually given within six months. Indaver’s planning application was lodged on the 28th November and objections must be sent to the Bord within eight weeks – that is, by 5.00pm on February 2, 2009 - accompanied by a fee of 50 Euro. This is a cynical exercise by the Bord to exclude worried citizens from the planning process that affects their community.

CHASE are encouraging groups of people to come together when making their objections, or to make their objections as a group e.g. residents associations, sports clubs, social clubs, etc.

See CHASE Newsletter 2009 for standard submission form that you can use instead of a letter.

CHASE has lobbied TDs (O'Dea, O'Keefe, and Martin, etc.) and all Cork County Councillors on this issue. Please do so as well.

See this paper for further details - Why Object.
