Port of Cork meets to discuss An Bord Pleanala decision

Following the decision by An Bord Pleanala, the Port of Cork held a board meeting today to discuss and review in detail the decision of An Bord Pleanala and the implications arising which will need to be considered, as well as identifying the next steps for the Port of Cork Company.

Brendan Keating, chief executive said: “The Port of Cork needs to bring forward new proposals for facilities to be considered. We have an obligation to our customers and equally we have to provide the necessary infrastructure to handle growth in trade. This is a setback and means that we must be vigorous and comprehensive with new proposals.”

The Port of Cork remains adamant that the growth in trade needs to be facilitated by the port and the economy of the region is dependent upon the port’s infrastructure which must have the capacity to handle growing volumes of trade.
