The organisation concerned has been informed that the proposed development it has under consideration may only be carried out in accordance with the terms of a foreshore lease granted pursuant to the Foreshore Acts, 1933 to 1998. Any application for a foreshore lease for that development will be considered on its objective merits, and interested parties will have an opportunity to express their views on the proposal.
