Environmental Impact Statement In Relation To The Proposed Alterations To The Permitted Development

Wednesday 11 January 2017

Under ABP Ref. No. Pa00035m An Bord Pleanala decided on 28th May 2015 to grant a 10-year planning permission to Port of Cork, (POC), for the redevelopment of the existing port facilities at Ringaskiddy.

During the detailed design of the proposed works it became evident that the long-term sustainability of the project could be significantly improved by making a number of alterations to the infrastructural works and the landside operations of the permitted container terminal. Therefore on the 20th July 2016, POC submitted to the Board a request to alter the terms of the permission granted.

The Port of Cork, (POC), has appointed a team of specialist consultants to prepare an environmental impact statement, (EIS), in relation to the proposed alterations to the permitted Ringaskiddy Port Redevelopment Project. The EIS is required by An Bord Pleanala under Section 146C of the Planning and Development Act, 2000 (as amended).

The public notice for the EIS was published on the 3rd January 2017, following submission of the EIS. 

Both EIS and notice are available to view by following the link below.
