Order served on former waste operator over ‘diffing’ plan

March 9, 2023

An enforcement notice has been served on a former waste operator in Donegal.

Letterkenny District Court heard this week that the notice was served on James (Jim) Ferry, on December 7 last by registered post.

The notice relates to an unauthorised development at Rossbracken, Manorcunningham.

Solicitor for Donegal County Council, Mr Kevin McElhinney, said the matter related to a change of use to a waste disposal facility.

Mr McElhinney said the facility in question is to be used as a car diffing facility.

“In the event that a diffing events proceeds as advertised, we will ask the court to take a view,” he said.

Mr Ferry was represented in court by solicitor Ms Maureen Gallagher, on behalf of JV Geary Solicitors, Castlebar.

The court was told that the matter is open to a full contest.

Judge Éiteáin Cunningham said she would make a note regarding the advertised car diffing event and adjourned the matter until May.
