CHASE PRESS RELEASE - 2 October, 2009
CHASE Request Clarification On Any Indaver Contact With An Bord Pleanala Over Hazardous Waste Landfill Proposal

CHASE have written to An Bord Pleanala formally requsting clarification on any Indaver involvement in preliminary discussions with An Bord Pleanala regarding a Hazardous Ash Dump proposed by Murphy Environmental in Naul, and seeking details of meetings, if any took place, with An Bord Pleanala at which Indaver staff or agents may have been present, either in person or by telephone.

"The fact that the proposed Ringaskiddy Plant, which is due for a final decision shortly by An Bord Pleanala, was factored into the discussion as part of the overall volumes is our concern," said Mary O'Leary, CHASE Chairperson.

It is clear from figures provided with the Naul proposal - which plans to take hazardous ash residues from both the Meath Incinerator, and the Cork Incinerator if it proceeds - that Indaver were consulted with regard to the proposal and we believe it is important to establish the extent of Indavers involvement in discussions.

Indaver qualify as major stakeholders with regard to the Naul proposal and it is appropriate to ask, and important to clarify if Indaver have had any contact with An Bord Pleanala when their own Ringaskiddy application is in the final stages of consideration.

A decision on the proposed Ringaskiddy Incinerator is due on 31st October, 2009.
