The local community group ‘Ballinasloe Says No’ have again initiated third Court proceedings against Galway County Council’s decision to grant another waste facility permit for a waste transfer station at a site in Poolboy.
The first step in the process is to seek leave from the court to bring Judicial Review proceedings and this application is now before the High Court and will take place in October of this year.
Chairperson, Dr. Vincent Parsons stated: “We are committed on behalf of the people of Ballinasloe to fight for health, safety and to protect our unique environment. It is shocking that Galway County Council have decided to grant this permit despite the unsuitability of this site and associated risks, showing total disregard for our people and the surrounding area.”
The committee now require fundraising and they have organised a Golf classic taking place on Friday 2 and Saturday 3 September at Ballinasloe Golf Club. They are calling on everyone for their support on what promises to be a fun day out for all with lots of spot prizes! More information on how to take part will be posted closer to the event on their Facebook page @BallinasloeSaysNo
