The saga in a South-Galway town continues as residents were recently informed of a further delay on a decision to build a bio-gas plant 800m from the town square.

In a statement to The Clare Echo, the Gort Bio-Gas Concern Group expressed a “feeling of being left in the dark again” in response to a letter from An Bord Pleanala (ABP) on the decision to further delay the appeal which had an original date of April 30, which was later postponed to a final date of June 24.

Ireland’s national independent planning body said that “priority consideration is being given to the case”.

Set up in opposition to Sustainable Bio-Energy Limited who applied for planning permission for a bio-gas plant on a 25-acre site outside the town boundaries three years ago, the Bio-Gas Concern Group insisted Galway County Council’s decision to refuse planning should be upheld.

“The people of Gort are more and more frustrated that there’s still no relief to this serious threat to the town and it’s environment. The latest information from ABP provides no new decision date leaving the people of south Galway in the dark,” the statement added.
