DCC asked AI to confirm access rights back in 2012

In the post Are AI’s plans unravelling? we wrote:
since the initial request on 13 May, AI has been unable to supply any evidence that it has the necessary rights over the surface, despite repeated requests
But in actual fact, DCC asked AI to confirm access rights at the proposed location back in 2012.  

For reasons only DCC can explain, the Council continued to blindly pursue Straitgate - upgrading it to a Specific Site this year in its draft Minerals Plan - without seeing any evidence that AI had the rights to use third-party land.
