Group to decide on Irish Steel site

Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government, John Gormley yesterday announced that the Government is to establish a new working group to develop detailed proposals on the future of the former Irish Steel/Ispat site at Haulbowline in Cork harbour.

Mr Gormley said that the group, which is to be chaired by the Office of Public Works, will involve a range of Government department and State agencies and will be asked to determine the optimum use for the site.

The group would also look at legacy issues relating to pollution at the site and proper public consultation with the local community would be a priority for the group, he said.
