An Bord Pleanala has confirmed that it’s processing three valid objections in relation to the North Quays development in Waterford.
The Bord says the individual who submitted an invalid objection subsequently, and within time, put in a corrected one which was processed yesterday and validated.
They say the team does not, as a general rule, confirm the position categorically the day after the deadline and that it takes time for material to travel from its initial point of receipt to the team responsible.
Pat Moran from Cheekpoint who submitted one of the submissions told the Waterford News and Star that for him it’s about protecting the Port of Waterford. He said the Council had not provided enough assurance that cruise ships will be able to come into the City.
Eddie Lynch who owns the Top Petrol Station in Ferrybank said he was in favour of the development but his objection was is regard to Waterford City Councils decision to compulsory purchase order his property.
He felt it was an attempt to acquire his property at a fraction of the actual market value.
