Silence from NPWS on Dawn Meats biodiversity issues

A submission to Meath County Council from the Development Applications Unit of the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage on the Dawn Meats project reveals that no concerns were raised about impacts on protect species and habitats in the Boyne.

This government department is home to the National Parks and Wildlife Service which is tasked with protecting and monitoring our biodiversity including habitats and species protected by EU law.

While they raised concerns with archaeology, the submission expresses no view on the proposal to pump effluent into the Boyne river which contains several protected habitats and is home to otters, kingfisher, salmon and river lamprey.
