Waste Material Recovery Space Set To Double In Cabragh Business Park, Thurles.

Tipperary County Council has, by an order dated 16th July, 2021, now decided to grant permission for yet one further development of a single storey, waste material, recovery and transfer facility at the Cabragh Business Park, Ballycurrane, Thurles, Co. Tipperary, much to the regret of many of the local people living in the immediate vicinity.

Initially, back in February last, planning had been sought for a 24.500 ton waste collection centre. Why the sudden change in the recent application is known, however residents are refusing to confirm at this time.

Already, within the same immediate vicinity is yet one other single storey material waste recovery and transfer facility with similar waste storage capacity; allowing for the acceptance and handling of waste materials, again to the amount of 5,000 tonnes per annum. In total now, with both facilities existing within Cabragh Business Park, waste storage has been doubled to 10,000 tonnes per annum.

This new sanctioned planning grant permits for:- (A) the erection of a single storey material recovery and transfer facility building on a floor area of 1031 m sq., (B) a single storage detached prefabricated office building on a floor area of 60 m sq. with signage on both buildings, (C) vehicular access to the site via the 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 works consisting of petrol interceptor and silt traps and connection to existing septic tank and upgraded percolation area with all associated site works.

It has as yet not been established, if persons living within the area will now appeal against this planning grant; to An Bord Pleanala. Same is required within the four weeks, from the date of the making of this decision; i.e. 16th July, 2021, by Tipperary County Council’s Planning Authority.
