Kilsaran seeks to restore pit to original ground level

Kilsaran Concrete has registered a planning application with Kildare County Council to import 1.2m tonnes of natural inert waste materials in order to backfill a pit at Halverstown, writes Brian Byrne.

The materials will include excess soil, stone and broken rock. A section of the concrete block curing shed on site will be used for inspection and quarantine of waste prior to its use to restore the site to its original level on land currently in agricultural use.

The application also seeks permission to temporarily stockpile topsoil pending its re-use as a cover material for the final restoration of the site.

An Environmental Impact Statement Report is required with this application and the company says it will be submitting this.

The file number is 18308 and any submissions should be made by 26 April 2018.
