An Electricity Supply Board Networks planning application to Longford County Council relating to the winding up of an Ash Disposal facility has stalled in the planning office.
The application by ESB Networks was deemed incomplete by the local authority. The proposed plan has an address at Lough Ree Power Ash Disposal facility, Derraghan More, Ballymahon, Longford.
The application relates to what it describes as an “integrated constructed wetland” (ICW) over a total area of 5.58ha located within the existing Lough Ree Power Ash Disposal Facility (ADF) site.
The application proposes to include the formation of wetland cells, associated works and access roads using on site soils.
Judge Bernadette Owens has been appointed the new sitting judge for counties Longford and Westmeath, the Leader can exclusively reveal.
Two Longford motoring enthusiasts are lining up to take part in a freewheeling spin around Ireland in a three day driving extravaganza.
The development, if approved, will include landscaping both within the wetland cells and surrounding area.
The existing ash disposal facility is a repository to store ash in order to remain compliant with Environmental Protection Agency regulations.
ESB say the current purpose of the ICW is for “the management and treatment of leachate arising from the ADF”.
The ICW is planned as part of their closure, as well as the restoration and aftercare management plan.
Any discharge waters following treatment through the ICW will flow to two open water cells for containment.
