  • 4 Year Long Planning Appeal

    In what must be a record, An Bord Pleanala took over four years to reach a decision on an appeal concerning the continuation of quarrying activities at Fountain Cross Quarry, Ennis, County Clare.  The application was lodged in May 2008 and was only recently decided in August 2012.  Whilst the Board sought an Environmental Impact Assessment and an Appropriate Assessment as part of the assessment of the application, four years seems an incredibly long time to arrive at a decision.  Fortunately for the applicant the Board upheld the decision of Clare County Council to grant permission.
