Rural Independents to give a briefing on appeal re Glanbia’s proposed South Kilkenny factory

It's set to take place at midday

Some politicians are set to give a briefing today on the proposed Glanbia plant in South Kilkenny.

Planning permission for the cheese manufacturing facility at Belview initially got the go-ahead from An Bord Pleanala.

This was challenged by An Taisce, but the High Court dismissed that – a decision the environmental awareness charity last Friday said it would appeal.

In a statement to KCLR News yesterday Glanbia Ireland outlined what the effects of a further delay to their plans would mean (more on that here).

Both bodies had nobody available for further comment.

The Rural Independents are expected to give a briefing on this later today.
