I propose to take Questions Nos. 151 and 152 together.

Delivery of the National Inventory of Architectural Heritage (NIAH) project is well advanced with a substantial body of survey work published and accessible on the Buildings of Ireland website at www.buildingsoflireland.ie. Substantive work is underway on 6 surveys around the country. The initial scoping of the NIAH survey for Dublin City has commenced. The survey will represent a significant undertaking and considerable further planning is required. In the interim, Dublin City Council maintains a Record of Protected Structures and has continued to add structures to it. Generally, it is not the practice to issue Ministerial recommendations to planning authorities in advance of the completion of the relevant NIAH survey.
