Demolition of the old mart on New Line Road in Rathkeale
Demolition works are currently taking place on the old mart in Rathkeale.
They are being carried out following the granting of planning permission 17/179 “to take down and remove existing steel portal frame buildings from the site including appropriate treatment and disposal of asbestos sheeting by a licensed contractor and all associated site development works”.
A specialist environmental consultant has been appointed to supervise the project. They are working in compliance with planning conditions and a waste management plan was submitted in advance of works commencing. Furthermore, a specialist asbestos removal contractor has been appointed.
Limerick City and County Council inspected the site yesterday and found that everything on site was in order.
Comprehensive health and safety precautions had been taken as per the regulations.
We will continue to monitor these works. The Council has, to date, found no evidence to suggest that any environmental issue exists.
