This day last year we were given planning permission by Galway County Council for the Renville Development. Unfortunately objections were lodged with An Bord Pleanála on the 11th October, and over 11 months later there is still no sign of a decision from An Bord Pleanála, even though they have a legal requirement to make planning decisions within 18 weeks.

The process in An Bord Pleanála is that each case is given to an inspector who prepares a report on the case (including a recommendation on whether to accept or not) and this is then submitted to the board of An Bord Pleanála for a final decision. As of last week our file was still with the inspector, to whom it had been assigned. We understand that they are very busy, with priority being given to Strategic Housing Development (SHD) projects, but it is still very frustrating that a community project such as ours is not given more priority.

The Renville Management Committee continues to work in the background to prepare as much as possible for the hopefully positive decision from An Bord Pleanála, though most actions we need to undertake have reached a stage where they are on hold until we get the planning decision. We have also been canvassing local politicians to see if they can help with this issue.

Thanks to all the supporters of the project for your patience and hopefully we will get good news soon.

Kind Regards,

Renville Project - Management Committee
