Dry-waste recovery/recycling management facility Refused Permission in Kilcullen, Co. Kildare

January 17, 2013
  • A decision by Kildare County Council to grant planning permission for a dry-waste recovery/recycling management facility in Kilcullen Business Campus, Kilcullen, County Kildare has been overturned by An Bord Pleanala who refused permission.

    The applicant has sought permission for a dry-waste recovery/recycling management facility for inorganic waste material, including an End of Life Vehicle recovery facility, vehicle compactor, non ferrous metals store and associated works.  There was significant local opposition from residents in Kilcullen and they appealed Kildare County Council’s decision to An Bord Pleanala. 

    The Board’s inspector recommended that permission be refused and the Board agreed with this recommendation.  They refused permission for a total of 4 reasons.  The first reason related to the fact that the proposed development was not considered to be a light industrial use and would conflict with the planning authority’s objective for land use zoning (‘light industry and warehousing’). The second reason related to the impact of the proposed development on the amenities of residential property in the vicinity by reason of noise and general disturbance.  The third and fourth reasons related to insufficient information being provided in relation to traffic and groundwater pollution.

Permission granted for waste water treatment plant near Kilcullen, Co. Kildare

March 26, 2010

KILDARE County Council has granted planning permission for a municipal waste water plant near Kilcullen. Despite the objections of locals, the applicant, Paddy White, was granted permission to build the plant at Carrighill Lower and Ballyshannon.

The application was made on June 30, 2009 and granted on March 12 last. Objections and submissions from locals noted that there were other options to upgrade the plant in the village, that road access to the plant would be a traffic hazard, that a previous application at the same site, which included a similar plant had been refused for public health reasons.

They also felt that the plant was not required and that it was unclear who would own and manage the plant.

A previous planning application for an eco village of 137 houses, a school, creche and commercial units had been refused in 2007.

However, in his report, planner Damian Daly, while noting that Mr. White had been refused permission for an eco village, he made it clear that “a grant of permission in relation to the current proposal (of a waste water treatment plant), does not mean that permission will be granted for an eco village or any other housing application on the lands should such an application be lodged”.

At E65 per 24 square metres, levies of n1,560 will apply to the development.
