CHASE has applied to the High Court for permission to launch a judicial review against An Bord Pleanála’s decision to approve planning for Indaver Ireland’s incinerator at Ringaskiddy.
The application was mentioned in Court in Dublin this morning, 19 July 2018 by Maurice Collins Senior Counsel on behalf of CHASE. The matter was adjourned and will be heard next Tuesday morning, July 24th at 10.15am. It is anticipated that a decision will be made on that day on the request by CHASE for permission to proceed.
This application is being made by CHASE on behalf of the communities and groups in Cork, Cork Harbour and beyond who have supported the campaign over the last few weeks and led an incredible fundraising drive which has enabled this application.
CHASE Chairperson Mary O’Leary said “We are grateful to the thousands of individuals and organisations who have raised and donated funds to make this application possible and who have rallied so strongly to support the CHASE campaign over the last 8 weeks. There is palpable anger and disbelief at this decision by An Bord Pleanala.”
CHASE were represented in Court today by Maurice Collins SC, David Holland SC and Alan Keating BL, and by Noonan Linehan Carroll Coffey, Solicitors.
