Hearing into interconnector adjourned

A hearing by Bord Pleanála into an Eirgrid plan to establish a second North/South electricity interconnector has been adjourned until Monday after the board inspector said a serious matter had arisen.

At the hearing yesterday, Fine Gael councillor Owen Bannigan, speaking on behalf of the Monaghan Anti-Pylon Committee Ltd, said the newspaper public notice and site notice did not accurately describe the project, as the height range of the pylons in the publications was ranging from 23m to 37m yet the actual height range was from 23m to 44m.

Inspector Mary Coneen said she was adjourning the hearing until Monday when all parties could come back and make their arguments as to how, if at all, the hearing could continue.
