Port of Cork’s €100m Ringaskiddy Redevelopment Delayed Again

#Ringaskiddy - Port of Cork Company plans for a €100m Ringaskiddy redevelopment of its cargo-handling facilities have been hit with a further delay, writes the Irish Examiner.

An Bord Pleanála has written to the company instructing it to submit a revised Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) and screening assessments which will have to be put in place before it can consider approval.

This includes the impact of the proposed dumping of dredged material necessary to undertake the Ringaskiddy project.

An Bord Pleanála said it considers this to be an activity directly connected to the proposed development and its impact was not properly assessed in the EIS the company originally submitted.

In addition, it wants the resubmitted EIS "to address the potential in combination effects" arising from all relevant permitted and proposed plans and projects in the vicinity of Ringaskiddy, including the permitted development of a 74-berth marina in Cobh, which was not acknowledged in the EIS.

The Port of Cork has been instructed to have the revised EIS submitted to An Bord Pleanála by February 23. The company had expected a decision on its planning application by the end of last year.

Almost a year ago plans and details outlining the redevelopment site in lower Cork Harbour to include 3D display's for a public consultation were made open.
