Department of Environment, Community and Local Government
Question 441: To ask the Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government the discretion Eirgrid has at its disposal to move a line carrying a pole a short distance if the relocation would benefit local residents and have no detrimental effect on any other local resident and if An Bord Pleanála were to sanction the permission, or if this discretion for relocation is curtailed. [7974/12]
I have no function in relation to the matter raised. Under section 30 of the Planning and Development Acts 2000 - 2010, I am specifically precluded from exercising any power or control in relation to any particular case with which a planning authority or An Bord Pleanála is or may be concerned.
