Appeals likely from Ryanair, Uproar
THE decision to grant permission for T2 is likely to face several appeals with Ryanair and Uproar already declaring an intention to appeal.
They are likely to be joined by others given that 28 objections were lodged to the original planning file for the project.
Of that number, 18 objections came from the St Margaret’s area from residents primarily around the Kilreesk area who believe the ongoing expansion of Dublin Airport will wipe them off the map.
Joining them was Uproar, the Portmarnock-based group who believes a nationwide study of the airport needs of the whole country should be conducted before any further expansion is allowed at Dublin Airport.
There were also headline-grabbing objections from Ryanair and Ulick McEvaddy who have plans for their own competing terminals at the airport.
An Taisce also has a problem with the development, calling it ‘premature’ in its objection and saying the expansion of Dublin Airport was being done without ‘adequate strategic environmental assessment’.
Several residents in Cloghran, including the Turnapin Residents Association, also lodged objections saying the resulting road works would impact on their quality of life severely.
