Watch: Assembly calls for independent inquiry into Londonderry waste

Have your say

Environment Minister Mark H. Durkan has refused to oppose, in principle, a call for the establishment an independent inquiry into waste disposal in the North West in the wake of illegal dumping on a massive scale at Mobuoy Road.

During a debate on the matter at Stormont yesterday (Tuesday) Green MLA Steven Agnew once again raised the matter of retrospective planning applications at Gorticross.


He said: “Six of the unauthorised quarrying sites had discharge consents. You have to wonder why the operators felt that they could operate without planning permission but not without discharge consents.”
