Fianna Fail Councillor seriously concerned following recent application for waste facility on Little Island.
November 28, 2018
I am gravely concerned at a fresh planning application to Cork County Council for a "Waste Transfer and Recycling Facility" from Country Clean Recycling.
The proposed site for this facility at Courtstown Industrial Estate on Little Island is in my opinion wholly unsuitable, as the area is already zoned for future residential development. I’m also unhappy with the level of public consultation by Country Clean with the local community.
I also have a concern as to whether the Carrigrennan Waste Water Treatment Plant has capacity for such a development, and whether it’s permissible under its licence provided by the Environmental Protection Agency.
I would request that any decision regarding this development would be delayed until after The Little Island Traffic and Transportation Study has been completed.
