Details of Inse Bay Mast

Many residents of East Meath will have noticed a telecoms mast that appeared beside the Inse Bay bus stop during the week. It appears that the mast didn’t get planning permission but was licensed by Meath County Council under legislation designed to permit tables and chairs outside restaurants. Unlike planning permission there is no notice or public submissions. It all takes place behind closed doors. In most case the first anyone knows about it is when the mast goes up.

The reasons we can see the planning history is because the council originally told the developer to notify local residents but the developer decided this was too much trouble and appealed to An Bord Pleanála to have this condition removed.

We have copied below some of the files from the planning decision

  1. Application to Meath County Council for Licence

  3. Granted Licence
