LETTER FROM APPEALS CONVENOR

Hi Everybody

Today I a letter from the EPA Appeals Convenor’s office in regard to the Herron Quarry.

The appeal against grant and conditions of the clearing permit at the Quarry was received by the EPA.

The letter says”The appeal will be investigated by this office.  This will involve obtaining comments from the DEC, the permit holder and any other public authorities or individuals with an interest in the subject matter of the appeal.  In line with normal practice, a copy of your appeal will also be provided to the proponent to allow the opportunity to respond to the issues.

Once the investigations have been completed, a report is prepared for the consideration of the Minister for Environment.  The Minister then determines the appeal,  the details of which will be communicated to you and other interested parties in writing.

Please note that pending the determination of the appeal, the clearing permit is deemed not to have been granted.
