Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) - Public Consultation for Afforestation and Forest Road Construction 2017

Under the European Communities (Forest Consent and Assessment) Regulations 2010 (S.I. No. 558 of 2010), all afforestation and forest road construction projects, whether grant-aided or not, require the prior written approval of the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine.

Before the Minister can grant approval for any afforestation and forest road construction project, he must first determine if the project is likely to have a significant environment effect.

The lists below give notice of the applications for approval that have been received by the Department. 

Any person can make a submission on the likely environmental effect of the proposed project within 4 weeks of the date of the notice.

Submissions, or requests for further information, must be made in writing to:

Approvals Section,
Forest Service,
Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine,
Johnstown Castle Estate,
Co. Wexford.
