Combined Residents Against Incineration (CRAI) legal challenge

The local campaign group opposed to the Poolbeg incinerator in Dublin has launched a legal challenge to the planned facility.

No Incinerator

Combined Residents Against Incineration (CRAI) has taken the first step of its High Court appeal against the planning permission granted for the development.

The action is being taken against the Minister for the Environment, the Attorney General, Dublin City Council and An Bord Pleanála.

In the papers it lodged yesterday, CRAI said Ireland had failed to transpose into Irish law its obligations under European Council directives. The group claims it is entitled to have access to a review procedure to challenge the substantive legality of the decision of An Bord Pleanála to grant planning permission for the municipal incinerator at Pigeon House Road.

CRAI is made up of residents living in areas such as Irishtown, Sandymount and Ringsend.
