TII have informed Mary that the consultation period for the application for the Railway (MetroLink to Charlemont via Dublin Airport) Order  has been extended from November 25th, 2022 to January 16th, 2023.
A number of constituents have asked Mary if the fee of €50 per submission applies for people living in close proximity (within 30m) of the proposed tunnel. Mary submitted a query on behalf of these concerned residents and was informed:
“Please note there is no waiver of the fee. Those objecting to the proposed development must pay a fee of €50.
If however they are landowners and are listed on the schedule for their land to be acquired, no fee is required. If they are in any doubt, I would advise that the fee is paid, the Board will check to see if they are on the schedule and if they are a refund will issue.”
