Mac Lochlainn praises campaigners as Moville Greencastle Scheme gets the go-ahead

Donegal NE Deputy Padriag Mac Lochlainn says the residents of Moville and Greencastle have much to be proud of after An Bord Pleanala this week gave the go ahead for the contravserial sewerage scheme in the area.

The permission is contrary to the recommendations of an inspector, and subject to a number of conditions, including the omission of a pumping station at Glenburnie.

There is still a possibility that the Campaign for a Clean Estuary may go to Europe, Deputy Mac Lochlainn  says if they do, they will have his full support.

He says from Donegal County Council's point of view, there have been mistakes and problems since this first came on the agenda in 1990, and lessons will have to be learned........
