Plans for Japanese knotweed facility near Ballyhaunis rejected by An Bord Pleanala

An Bord Pleanala has rejected plans for a Japanese knotweed facility near Ballyhaunis. A company called Pollution & Construction Solutions Ltd – trading as The Japanese Knotweed Company – had applied for permission for a recovery facility for soil and stone waste, including soils containing Japanese knotweed, at a disused quarry at Hazelhill / Drumbaun on the outskirts of Ballyhaunis.

Mayo County Council had refused permission for the development and the company appealed that decision to An Bord Pleanala.  

Observations were also received from a local landowner and the Drumbane Residents Association.  They claimed that the roadway into the site is not suitable for large volumes of traffic, and concerns were also expressed over noise and dust pollution.

An Bord Pleanala has now refused planning permission for the facility saying that given the location close to residential dwellings, it was not satisfied that the proposed development would not seriously injure the amenities of properties in the vicinity by reason of noise, dust and general disturbance.

The Board also considered the proposal would pose a risk of environmental pollution.
