All forestry licence applications undergo a comprehensive vetting process to ensure that, inter alia,the landscape, environment and our archaeological heritage are protected. Every application is treated on its own merits and is examined with regard to its effect, if any, on its surroundings.

In this particular case, there has been detailed correspondence with the registered forester and a Natura Impact Assessment was submitted to the Department on 16th April, 2019.This has been referred to the Department's ecologist for assessment and a decision on the application will issue when all environmental and other considerations have been considered in full.
