Huge opposition growing to plan for bioenergy electricity plant in Naas

March 10, 2010

RESIDENTS and politicians are lining up to oppose plans for a E12.5m bioenergy electricity-generating plant at Kerdiffstown, Naas, close to the M7 motorway, despite assurances they have nothing to worry about.

 M&M Coldstores, based at the Newbridge Industrial Estate, have applied for permission to construct the facility including two anaerobic digesters as well as up to a dozen storage tanks.

The application also embraces gas flares.

According to the company, the plant will be 500 metres from the nearest resident and the plant will provide green electricity for 20 per cent of the local population (4,000 houses) and provide hot water to local businesses.

A total of 15 permanent jobs will be provided immediately and 50 jobs after it is built.

Local councillors have been urging people to object to the application on the basis that animal carcasses and sewage would be processed at the plant to create energy. This was dismissed by the developer who said organic waste, generated by local businesses – essentially food and water byproducts – will be used.

Objections must be received by next Monday, March 15, and a decision is due on April 4.

Householders fear the plant will create smells and could pose a health risk for people living in the area as well as having implications for amenities, property prices and local business. (more…)

An Bord Pleanala refuses permission for 3 industrial/warehouse units on Monread Road, Naas, Co. Kildare

December 29, 2009

An Bord Pleanala has refused permission to Mr. Larry McKenna for the demolition of ‘Grove Villa’, a protected structure on the Monread Road, Naas.  The demolition was sought in order to facilitate the construction of 3 industrial/warehouse units.  The Board upheld the decision of Naas Town Council to refuse permission, stating that “The proposed development would result in the demolition of Grove Villa, a protected structure listed in the Naas Town Development Plan, 2005-2011. The Board is not satisfied that there are exceptional circumstances which would warrant the demolition of the protected structure. The proposed development would, therefore, be contrary to
the proper planning and sustainable development of the area”.
