Department of Housing, Planning, and Local Government
The application referred to in the Deputy’s question is a matter for the Commissioner of Valuation, who is independent in the exercise of his functions under the Valuation Act 2001 to 2020. I, as Minister, have no function in decisions in this regard.
Notwithstanding this, I am informed by the Commissioner of Valuation that the application is receiving attention and will be finalised shortly.
Arrangements have been put in place by all bodies under the aegis of my Department to facilitate the provision of information directly to members of the Oireachtas. The contact email address for the Valuation Office (VO) is oireachtas.enquiries@VALOFF.ie This provides a speedy, efficient and cost effective system through which the VO can address queries of this kind.
