Protect East Meath has filed an observation on Irish Cement’s plans for a major development at its Platin factory. Protect East Meath is concerned that no notices were placed in the East Meath area or in local newspapers and Meath County Council did not put the plans online despite being required to do so by legislation.

The High Court today formally quashed a decision of An Bord Pleanála granting permission for a 450-unit development off the Marsh Road in Drogheda.

This morning the High Court ruled that in this case Ravala couldn’t continue with the challenge because the court wasn’t satisfied that it could meet the strict standards for the assessment of impacts on habitats protected by EU law.
