Planning passed by council but many residents still ‘very unhappy’
A NEW sewerage treatment plant for Muff has been given the green light, despite local residents’ objection.
At a meeting of Donegal County Council in Lifford earlier this month, councillors granted planning permission for a 14-acre Integrated Constructed Wetland at Kilderry ahead of the handover to Irish Water.
However, the vote was split due to local concerns, with 13 votes to eight. In Inishowen four councillors, Fine Gael’s Bernard McGuinness and Mickey Doherty, and Fianna Fáil’s Rena Donaghey and Paul Canning voted in favour of the project, while Labour councillor, Martin Farren, Sinn Féín’s Jack Murray and Fine Gael’s John Ryan all voted against the sewerage plant.
