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.

#PortofCork – According to The Irish Examiner, two of the biggest developments to come before planners in recent years will get under way when oral hearings will be made on the same day in Cork next month.
Inspectors from An Bord Pleanála will listen to proposals by the Port of Cork for a €100m upgrade of its container terminal at Ringaskiddy, while the GAA's plans for a €67m regeneration of Páirc Uí Chaoimh will also come in for scrutiny.
The port oral hearing will take place at Cork International Airport Hotel and the GAA's will be held at the Imperial Hotel. Both start on September 10 and are expected to take up to three days to complete.
