New Landfill Application at Kerdiffstown

A new application has now been lodged for a landfill at Kerdiffstown, Naas. This is essentially the same application that was refused permission already in 2014. The kernel of the problem here is the atrocious past practice at the same location which led to A1 waste being fined 10 million in the High Court recently, following years of planning problems and abuses at their landfill. It should be noted the new applicant is not connected to A1 and is an entirely separate individual but the local community are understandably very wary of any new landfills in this vicinity, having endured the last one for several years too long. Confidence in the regulatory authorities to properly manage or govern any new facility is very low based on past experience.

A copy of the fresh application is here: Application for new landfill at Kerdiffstown and a sample objection is here also: Sample submission re Waste Permit applic. 2016. If you wish to send in your own objection you can email in to environ@kildarecoco.ie or by post to Kildare County Council, Áras Chill Dara, Devoy Park, Naas, Co Kildare.

The environmental lobby group Clean Air Naas have also setup a FaceBook page to monitor the application at https://www.facebook.com/Stop-New-Naas-Dump-1393260984021221/

I objected the last time and will be doing so again on this occasion as I fail to see what has materially altered since this application was refused barely two years ago. You can see my previous posts on this issue here.
