#PortDelay - The delay in issuing a decision on the Port of Galway's multi million euro harbour extension looks set to continue, with An Bord Pleanála stating this week that they have no timeline on a possible decision date, writes The Galway Independent.

The €126 million port extension is a four-phase development that involves reclaiming 27 hectares of bay area, providing a new marina and berths which will see the biggest cruise liners in the world being able to dock at the harbour in the heart of the city.

It has been over three years since the planning application to extend the port was submitted.

This week, a spokesperson for An Bord Pleanála said, “The current status of the proposed harbour development is that the Harbour Company has submitted proposals for compensatory measures to address the environmental impacts of the proposed development on Galway Bay and these initial proposals are being considered by An Bord Pleanála.

“Once this office is satisfied that the proposals are acceptable in principle, the Harbour Company will be given an opportunity to develop them in more detail.

“At this time I do not have a time line on these actions.”
