Residents refused leave to appeal against new Mayo asphalt plant

RESIDENTS opposing the construction of a new asphalt plant at the Roadstone site in Castlebar have been refused leave to appeal against the development.

Mayo County Council had granted plannning permission for the project on April 19 last subject to conditions.

Following the council's ruling and in the aftermath of a fire at an existing asphalt plant, Anthony Pickering and a number of residents of Aughaluskey sought to appeal the decision.

But An Bord Pleanála has overruled their request.

A spokesperson for the board explained: “Having regard to the submissions and documents received in connection with the application for leave to appeal and the conditions set out in the planning authority’s decision, it is considered that it has not been shown that the development will differ materially from the development as set out in the application.”
