In accordance with Article 6(3) of the EU Habitats Directive (Directive 92/43/EEC), an Appropriate Assessment Screening has been carried out on the project, in relation to any potential impacts upon Natura 2000 sites including the Cork Harbour Special Protection Area [Site No. 004030] and the Great Island Channel Special Area of Conservation [Site No. 001058]. The findings of the AA screening noted that no significant effects on any Natura 2000 sites is likely and it was not necessary to undertake any further stage of the Appropriate Assessment process. Cork City Council accepts these findings.

In addition, in accordance with Article 120(1)(a), the Planning Authority has carried out a preliminary examination of the nature, size and location of the proposed development to determine whether an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is required. It has been concluded that there will be no real likelihood of significant effects on the environment arising from the proposed development and an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is not required. Cork City Council accepts these findings.
