Indaver submit starving man and grossly understated vertical plume risk zone to Bord Pleanala
cork | environment | press release Tuesday July 25, 2017 22:08 by CHASE - Cork Harbour Alliance for a Safe Environment.
CHASE have submitted forensic analysis of Indaver’s new material to Bord Pleanala which reveals a starving model man on under 1,000 calories a day in order to meet EU dioxin intake limits, a gross underestimation by over 57metres of the vertical emissions dispersal and associated risk zone to helicopters, comparisons with a helicopter landing base near a UK Naval base that fails to mention that helicopter operations there ceased in 2012, three years before the nearby incinerator commenced operation in 2015, as well as ongoing dioxin discrepancies. The submission period for observations on Indaver’s new material closed on Friday last, 21 July at 5.30pm.
The material submitted by Indaver in May 2017 at the invitation of Bord Pleanala refers to further information on flight paths around the incinerator stack and information regarding the incorrect dioxin information submitted on the final day of the 2016 Oral hearing.
Dioxin expert, Dr Gordon Reid, who exposed the irregularities on the final day of the hearing said “In view of the fundamental unreliability of the data we have already been given, and its only partial improvement in the further information now submitted to the Board, I would suggest that the Board cannot accept at face value the dioxin deposition values”.
CHASE Chairperson Mary O’Leary said “The shameful inaccuracies, manipulation and omission of critical information are an attempt to gain planning at all costs, including misleading the planning authority and the community that an application is safe when it is not. It is a cornerstone of the entire planning system that the information submitted by a developer must be true. That cornerstone has been shattered in this case and it would be outrageous to grant permission or scope for any further clarification in these circumstances.
It is time to reject this application once and for all, allow Cork Harbour to reach its full potential and to get in line with current EU Circular Economy recommendations.”
The Bord Pleanala website currently states a decision date is currently unavailable. The decision was originally due in July 2016 in order to meet Strategic Infrastructure statutory guidelines.
