      there was a requirement that a sewerage system had to be put in place before the opening and operation of the terminal – this was never done & a planning permission has only recently been granted.

      Was is that the permission was obtained but the building did not conform and a retention sought, or did it never have full permission in the first place?

      The word is that:

      Planing permission was granted for the terminal on the 5th of January, 1998 – Clare CC ref. no. 97/1277. Condition 1 required that “before the proposed development is occupied” the method & location for treatment of effluent be agreed & have regard to the conservation status of the receiving waters which are the Shannon Estuary Special Area of Conservation, a major dolphin habitat.

      The terminal was opened in 2001 without any sewerage treatment system being even commenced, that means there could hardly have been any certificate of Compliance. Aer Rianta are only now getting around to inserting a sewerage treatment plant.

      Meanwhile Martin Cullen has been salivating over the 16 million Euro extra landing fees coming into the coffers for the use of the place as a U.S. military & prisoner transit base over the last year.

      Queries to Aer Rianta reveal a worrying lack of fire safety compliance. (if you want travel advice use Knock instead – as long as you close your eyes to the architecture).:)
