In February 2006, Indaver Ireland lodged a revised planning application with Meath County Council for the company's proposed Meath Waste-to-Energy Facility.
The principal change was to seek approval for an increase in capacity from 150,000 to 200,000 tonnes per annum - in line with the new North East Waste Management Plan. Other changes included a revised layout of the facility and new design features, in line with best practice.
Meath County Council granted planning permission in August 2006 (Click Here). Subsequently, An Bord Pleanála received five valid appeals to the Council's decision to grant planning permission.
In January 2007, Indaver was advised that An Bord Pleanála were to hold an oral hearing of appeals for the company's planning application. The Board has confirmed that the oral hearing will take place at the Boyne Valley Hotel, Drogheda, from Tuesday 6th March to Friday 9th March 2007 - commencing at 10.00am.
