#GalwayPortDelay- As plans to transform Galway Harbour continue to be deliberated by Bórd Pleanála, the Taoiseach has been asked to intervene to ensure the project gets European funding.
The Connacht Tribune writes that the Planning Appeals Board is due to announce its decision on whether to give the go-ahead for the multi-million euro redevelopment of the city harbour, but is unable to provide a date for the decision, which has already been pushed back several times.
The oral hearing into the proposed extension of the harbour was held in the city in January and a decision was due in April or May, however, in May the appeals board confirmed that the decision date has been pushed back by several weeks as reported on Afloat in June.
In a statement to the Galway City Tribune, An Bord Pleanála said it has been put back further. The statement reads: "The decision has not been made and it could be a while yet".
