Irish Independent: Shell planning breach claim dismissed

THE High Court has rejected a claim that Shell breached a planning condition requiring it to lodge a 20m security for the future restoration of the Corrib gas terminal site.
Mr Justice Thomas Smyth also yesterday dismissed a further claim by environmental activist Peter Sweetman that Shell had breached another planning condition by storing peat deposits on lands owned by the State forestry company Coillte near the terminal development.
Even if there was a “technical breach”, the judge said he would refuse Mr Sweetman's orders because of the bona fides of Shell on the planning issues and the delay by Mr Sweetman in bringing his proceedings, which led to Shell incurring financial losses.
