Written answers (Question to Minister for Finance)

I understand that the three relevant local authorities have made considerable progress in agreeing a revised schedule of works and that it is hoped they will soon be in a position to submit the completed schedule to my Department.

As has already been stated in response to earlier questions, sanction has been received in principle for a rescheduling of the total funding of €4.7 million approved in respect of the implementation of the management plan. The precise annual allocations will be determined by the agreed schedule of works and obviously availability of funding each year.
