PERMISSION is being sought for the development of a concrete batching plant in the Greenogue Business Park in Rathcoole.

The application was lodged by Quinn Cement Limited this month, who are seeking permission for the development of the plant, which is to contain a single-storey administrative building (130sq.m), and an aggregate storage structure consisting of five tipping bays.

Other aspects of the plant for which permission is being sought include a fully covered aggregate tip-in hopper, with fully covered aggregate conveyor belts, fully enclosed aggregate storage bins, a covered batch conveyor, and three cement silos.

Provision for a fully enclosed concrete batching tower with a built-in control room, a truck wash-down area, a truck refuel area, a truck wheel wash area, a weighbridge area, 16 car parking spaces and bicycle parking facilities to accommodate 6 bicycle parking spaces, is included in the application.

It is proposed that there will also be an ESB substation on site, and permission is also being sought to carry out hard and soft landscaping, boundary treatments and all associated site development works, both above and below ground.

A decision on the application is due from South Dublin County Council by August 2.
