Waste incinerator proposals rejected by planning board

A LARGE waste incineration plant which was proposed for Co Monaghan has been rejected by the Planning Appeals Board.

An Bord Pleanala refused to give the go-ahead for the controversial €50m plant which was set to be constructed near the small village of Emyvale, in Co Monaghan, close to the Tyrone border. The plan had previously been rejected by Monaghan County Council after residents protested over having the incinerator in their local area.

The company involved, Monopower Limited, is now expected to challenge the decision in the High Court.
