Re: Clonakilty Tidal Barrage

Local Authority Reference Number: 96/1376

Dear Sirs;

Friends of the Irish Environment would be grateful if the Local Authority would supply answers to the following two questions and would object to any development consent until the matters are clarified:

1) Under which legislation is the local authority competent to assess the Environmental Impact Statement for this development, given that the location of the proposal is outside the jurisdiction of the Urban and County Councils?

2) Why has no compensation been proposed and assessed as required under Article 6 of the Habitats Directive, given that there will be a significant overall negative impact on the conservation status of the site and no alternatives are available?

Yours, etc.,
