Coun­cil re­ports on de­lays in Broad­meadow Way ap­pli­ca­tion

Fingal Independent - - NEWS -

THE coun­cil has is­sued a re­port on the progress of the Broad­meadow Way.

Prompted by a ques­tion from Cllr David Healy (GP), the coun­cil re­ported: ‘In May and June of this year a re­view of the en­vi­ron­men­tal as­sess­ment and en­gi­neer­ing doc­u­ments for this project was in­sti­gated, in light of re­cent le­gal judge­ments re­lat­ing to en­vi­ron­men­tal leg­is­la­tion. One judge­ment in par­tic­u­lar, which re­sulted in in­creased re­quire­ments for Ap­pro­pri­ate As­sess­ment, was found to be of con­sid­er­able rel­e­vance to the Broad­meadow Way ap­pli­ca­tion and the doc­u­men­ta­tion that had been pre­pared to date. Fur­ther more de­tailed as­sess­ment of these judge­ments has been un­der­taken over the sum­mer and has re­sulted in a num­ber of items be­ing iden­ti­fied that re­quire amend­ments to min­imise risks to the scheme plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tion.’

The coun­cil re­ported: ‘This work is on­go­ing.’ Es­ti­mat­ing how long it will take to get over this de­lay and sub­mit the plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tion for the project, the coun­cil re­ported: ‘It is the in­ten­tion to sub­mit the ap­pli­ca­tion to An Bord Pleanala in Q4 2018.’
