Plans to develop the old Bord na Mona site at Littleton are in the pipeline.

That’s according to the Minister for Communications, Climate Action and the Environment, Denis Naughten.

Sixty nine people were employed at the briquette making plant when it ceased operations back in March, with the site lying idle since then.

Speaking at the Energy in Agriculture event at Gurteen College yesterday, the Minister said that as it was a brown field site with grid access it was a priority for development.
