Leasing of Land for Waste Infrastructure Development
Limerick City & County Council
RPS was appointed to provide expert advice and contract negotiations for the leasing of council owned land at Gortadroma Landfill, Co. Limerick.
The scope of the project covered the entire landfill area including the waste body, greenfield areas, existing infrastructure and electricity network connectivity. RPS managed the lease process including prequalification, assessment of bids from interested parties, recommendations on the preferred bidder, and development and negotiation of the terms of the long-term lease agreement. The successful bidder plans to develop a gasification plant at the landfill which could generate up to €4 million per annum in lease payments for Limerick City & County Council.
