Residents Near Dublin Airport Shocked Over High Court Decision

Residents near Dublin Airport have expressed their shock over a High Court decision over night time fights.

Fingal County Council had directed the airport to limit the number of flights to 65 between 11pm and 7am.

However the DAA has now secured a temporary stay on that decision at the High Court. The case has been put back for mention until November 14th.

David Walton, a spokesperson for aircraft noise pollution at Ballyboughal Community Council believes the DAA is getting some special kind of treatment.

"Planning was put in place by An Bord Pleanála, the highest planning authority in the land," he said.

"For us to see that DAA could potentially get away with breaking the law, and breaking the planning regulations and then get some kind of special treatment – I think it would be a shocking travesty.

"They've put a very strong spin on this, the judge seems to have gone for it.

"I think Fingal have 48 hours to fight this. I hope that they put their full resources behind this because this is the integrity of the planning system which is at stake.

"I think people will be gutted if this decision goes ahead. "
