Planning Sought For A 24,500 Ton Waste Facility In Thurles

It is back on Co. Tipperary’s Planning agenda once, more after a gap of almost 10 years. View HERE.
Planning permission is being sought for a 24,500 ton waste recycling facility to be positioned close to a large cluster of private residential housing, close to Thurles town centre.

Already, a recycling licence has been granted to one other company on this business park site.

The following application has been published in the Nenagh Guardian Newspaper which reads as follows: –

We, Ryan Cleaning Event Specialists Ltd, wish to apply to the above authority for full planning permission to construct the following:
(a) A single storey material recovery and transfer facility building (of floor area 1031m. sq.);
(b) A single storey detached prefabricated office building (of floor area 60m. sq.) with signage on both buildings;
(c) Vehicular access to the site is via the, as constructed existing entrance;
(d) A service yard with vehicle weighbridge and vehicle washing area with the site;
(e) On-site staff and visitor car parking and truck parking areas;
(f) All necessary ancillary site development works to facilitate this development, with boundary treatment and landscaping;
(g) All associated site work consisting of petrol interceptor and silt traps and connection to existing septic tank and upgraded percolation area, with all associated site works, at Cabra Business Park, Ballycurrane, Thurles, County Tipperary.
The application relates to an activity requiring a waste facility permit from Tipperary County Council, the waste tonnage for acceptance and handling at the facility will not exceed 24,500 tonnes per annum.

The planning application may be inspected or purchased at a fee not exceeding the reasonable cost of making a copy at the offices of the planning authority during its public opening hours.

A submission or observation in relation to the application may be made in writing to the planning authority on payment of the prescribed fee, €20, within the period of 5 weeks beginning on the date of receipt by the authority of the application and such submissions or observations will be considered by the planning authority in making a decision on the application.

The planning authority may grant permission subject to or without condition or may refuse to grant permission.

Angry residents of the town, point out that for some reason, no planning application (they claim), has been published, to-date, on the Thurles local newspaper the “Tipperary Star”.

We expect to be publishing more on this issue in the coming weeks.
