Following a two week High Court hearing in March 2019 with an extra day allocated on May 27 for closing remarks, High Court Judge David Barniville who is in charge of the Strategic Infrastructure Development list of cases at the High Court reserved judgement and advised he would aim for a decision as soon as possible.
Planning permission for the Ringaskiddy incinerator was granted by Bord Pleanala in May 2018 against the recommendation of the Board’s Planning Inspector Derek Daly, who led a 2 week planning hearing in April/May 2016 and who became the third senior Board Inspector to recommend refusal since 2004.
CHASE alleges that the Board acted unlawfully in the way it dealt with the planning application and in how it arrived at its decision. Permission to bring the case was given by the High Court in July 2018 following the May 2018 grant of planning.
CHASE is represented by Noonan Linehan Carroll Coffey Solicitors and by Maurice Collins SC, David Holland SC and Alan Keating BL.
