MOTION: Councillor F. Timmons

Cathaoirleach’s Business

“That a report be issued into Roadstone quarry and reports of worrying movement and tremors in the Hazelwood area at Green Isle are commented on.”

REPORT:

Following  the review and determination of all quarries in the county in 2012 an application for Substitute Consent was made by Roadstone to regularise development at the Belgard Quarry. This application remains to be determined by An Bord Pleanála.

An application for further development, continued use and extension by deepening of an area (18.2 hectares) of overall site of the quarry to 5m OD has also been submitted to An Bord Pleanála. This application also remains to be determined. South Dublin County Council has made observations on both applications to An Bord Pleanála.

The quarry operator has been submitting regular monitor results from the quarry operations in respect of dust, water quality and vibration. The results are generally within established limits.

The Planning Authority has no record of any complaints of movement and tremors in the Hazelwood area at Green Isle.
