has been given for the retention of disputed recycling facilities at Deepwater Quay.
These include dismantling and depolluting sheds and underground storage tanks.
The principal objector said there had been ''serious breaches of previous planning permissions'' on the site.
The final decision was made by Bord Pleanala on September 10th and released earlier this week.
The Pleanala Inspector, Breda Gannon, had also recommended that approval be given after a site visit in November last year.
Sligo Borough Council had originally granted permission in August 2011.
But this was appealed to Pleanala by William J Tighe of the Business Park, Old Dublin Road, Sligo.
Mr Tighe's said the Borough Council failed, in making its decision, to take account of ''serious breaches'' of previous planning permissions granted on the site in 2005 and 2006.
Details and Maps
Pleanala's verdict said the development would not detract from visual amenities of the area, nor would it pose an unacceptable risk of pollution.
Revised conditions have now been imposed on Erin Recyclers Limited by Pleanala, eleven in total.
The developer is required to submit details and maps within one month to Sligo Borough Council on the issue of waste storage.
Plan Design Associates, Ballina, represented the developer in dealing with the planning authorities.
