Retail NI Comments on Court of Appeal Incinerator Ruling

Commenting on the Court of Appeal ruling to uphold the decision to block planning permission for the Mallusk incinerator, Retail NI Chief Executive Glyn Roberts said:

“This decision will have far-reaching implications for the planning system in Northern Ireland not least for the long-awaited North-South Electricity Interconnector"

 It will result in delays in large-scale planning applications currently being processed by the Department for Infrastructure. Millions of pounds of vital infrastructure investment is now at risk”

‘This decision is a further negative consequence of having no Ministers in place to make the vital strategic decisions that impact on our economy”

“The people of Northern Ireland deserve better than a ‘care and maintenance’ administration and need to see Ministers making decisions again”

“This situation cannot continue any longer”
