RE: ML decision ........how long does this take?03 Apr 2021 11:22
would agree Ban. Covid has impacted everything .. but the climate as we start to open up has to be one of job creation and it would need an incredibly compelling case to deny the ML, especially now clearly linked to the hydrogen storage. Fingers crossed for a quick decision
But sure what basis we would be throwing in the towel given the final consultation period has ended and the last update confirmed a decision should be made by end of March. Admittedly I’m not holding my breath.. but an crossing my fingers
Non essential retail, gyms,pools,pubs,restaurants not open to the public .. otherwise businesses still operating ... you can still order stuff from Amazon etc.. construction industry specifically mentioned .. as Tango said no impact on INFA.
Agreed Tango, unfortunately I suspect the hope will be something concrete has landed. The reality will be more detail on the efforts to close out the ML, and the great opportunities for major shipbuilding contracts. Will go away positive with little movement in SP. I can’t forget the December 2018 meeting ... we were so close !
Be great to get some questions asked. The Public Consultation has been closed for 7 months and in reality there has been no update or any indication of a timeline .. we could be sitting here same time next year having same discussion. COVID clearly has had an impact but I find it staggering why given we are in a recession everything possible isn’t being done to create jobs and encourage these projects. Basically WTF have DAERA been doing for 7 months ?
