Update on foreshore licence, CAOs and pipeline application

FORESHORE LICENCE
The foreshore licence for bore holes in Sruth Fhada Chonn estuary has been
granted by the Minister for Environment, John Gormley. This means that Shell have
permission to make up to 80 bore holes in the estuary and work will begin shortly. This is an EU Special Area of Conservation and Special Protected Area.

 

Here is a link to an article about the work they want to do in the estuary:

COMPULSORY ACQUISTION ORDERS
Local landowners have received applications for compulsory aquistion orders
in relation to the new pipeline route. We have until the 28th July to object.
The CAOs will not be served on individuals until this process is complete.

PIPELINE APPLICATION
An Bord Pleanala will probably ask for submissions about Shell's new information on the pipeline application next week. We have 4 weeks after this date to hand in submissions.

Hope thats all clear, if any of you can make it down over the next few weeks
that would be great!
