North/South Interconnector was granted permission by a civil servant with no power. Court Rules in a similar case..

The part of North/South Interconnector in Northern Ireland was granted planning permission by a civil servant in
the absence of either a Stormont or Direct rule Minister The court of Appeal has ruled that the civil servant does not have the power to make such a decision. It was a Judicial Review of a decision to grant an incinerator. I give a new thread to it, because this is a major set back for Eirgrid and governments on both sides of the border. It is also a set back for the wind industry.

It is unclear what can happen. Great news.

There are only 2 options, re-assemble Stormont with Ministers to decide or send in \Ministers from Britain under Direct rule provision.

Neither are likely for a year at least and Brexit makes it less likely. The longer it is delayed the more likely the enthusiasm
for it will dwindle.

Anything that is a set back for the useless non-green wind industry is a win-win for both sides of the border!

Some kind of minister will have to be appointed and I cannot see how. Even if one is appointed, can he grant on the process already there? Probably.
