FRESH PLAN­NING AP­PLI­CA­TION FOR DUHALLOW CRE­MA­TO­RIUM

The Corkman - - FRONT PAGE - MARIA HER­LIHY

A FRESH plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tion has been lodged by Clas­sic Lodges Ltd to build a cre­ma­to­rium in Kan­turk.

The plan­ning no­tice was put in place out­side the pro­posed site at Drum­cum­mer Beg on Thurs­day, Novem­ber 1. It now means that any pro­posed ob­jec­tors or those who wish to fur­nish ob­ser­va­tions must do so all over again.

As re­ported in last week’s edi­tion of The Cork­man, Cork County Coun­cil had shot down Clas­sic Lodges Ltd orig­i­nal plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tion as it stated that on in­spec­tion of the land it was noted that only one site no­tice was erected – when there should have been two. The ap­pli­ca­tion, un­der Ar­ti­cle 19 of the Plan­ning and De­vel­op­ment Reg­u­la­tions, was there­fore not met and its ap­pli­ca­tion and draw­ings were re­turned and its ap­pli­ca­tion de­clared in­valid.

The first in­valid ap­pli­ca­tion by Clas­sic Lodges Ltd had at­tracted a flurry of ob­jec­tions/ob­ser­va­tions as over 60 were lodged, which in­cluded an eight paged ob­ser­va­tion by The Is­land Cre­ma­to­rium via their plan­ning con­sul­tants, who cited at that time that there “does not ap­pear to be any gas mains in this lo­ca­tion that would al­low easy con­nec­tion to the pro­posed fa­cil­ity.”

There was also statu­tory re­ports re­ceived from the HSE, who at that time made ob­ser­va­tions based on chem­i­cals as well as fuel stor­age, pest con­trol, emis­sions to the at­mos­phere, re­mains stor­age, noise, waste man­age­ment, pro­tec­tion of sur­face wa­ters and ground-wa­ters as well as mon­i­tor­ing and de­com­mis­sion­ing.

It also stated at that time that the River Black­wa­ter and its as­so­ci­ated spe­cial area of con­ser­va­tion is “ex­tremely close” to the pro­posed de­vel­op­ment.

There was an­other statu­tory re­port from Trans­port In­fra­struc­ture Ire­land (TII).
