PLANS FOR TUAM ANAEROBIC DIGESTION

Published

Plans for a biogas and anaerobic digestion facility at Airglooney in Tuam have been withdrawn.

The controversial plans were the subject of an oral hearing which took place in Tuam in January.

Galway County Council had originally granted permission to Bernard Hynes for the biogas facility at Airglooney Business Park, but this decision was appealed to An Bord Pleanála.

Those opposed to the waste facility expressed concerns about the close proximity of the proposed development to the Clare river, public health, safety and traffic management.

It was argued during the oral hearing that if the project got the go-ahead it could market the Tuam area as a green energy leader.

However, An Bord Pleanála says the application for the digestion plant at Airglooney has been withdrawn.

Spokesperson for Tuam Biogas Concern Group, John Joyce says they are now focusing on a separate similar development which could be planned for another area in Tuam:

Galway Bay fm newsroom – Galway West TD Eamon O’ Cuiv has hit out at Government “petty mindedness” when it comes to Traveller accommodation.

He said quite rightly, we give out about the conditions for people looking for asylum and for students.

But speaking in the Dáil, he implied that Travellers are not afforded the same consideration.
