If a judicial review is granted into a decision to approve planning for a regeneration project in Mohill, it is likely to delay works for a number of months.

That was the opinion of a senior official of Leitrim County Council at the October meeting of Carrick-on-Shannon Municipal District this week.

Earlier this month the High Court heard that Independent Councillor Des Guickian was seeking permission to bring a judicial review against An Bord Pleanála over its decision last March that an assessment of the Mohill plan was not required under the EU Habitats Directive.

The prospect of this legal action delaying the multi-million euro streetscape enhancement plans for Mohill was raised by Councillor Thomas Mulligan at the monthly meeting of the Carrick M.D this week.

Senior Council official Joe Gilhooley admitted that the outcome of s court hearing next month, deciding on whether the judicial review can go ahead, will determine what stage the project will move forward to.

He also admitted that if the legal challenge does go ahead it is likely to take several months to work its way through the courts, and this will impact on the timing of the project.
