FRESH PLANNING APPLICATION FOR DUHALLOW CREMATORIUM
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).
