Written answers (Question to Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform)

I can inform the Deputy that the Property Registration Authority (PRA) is in the process of digitising the boundary information in respect of all registered titles. The project commenced in July 2005 and is due for completion in 2010. Counties Longford, Carlow, Meath, Westmeath, Kilkenny, Wexford, Clare, Louth, Wicklow, Roscommon and South County Dublin have now been completed and several additional counties will be digitised by the end of 2008. Once digitisation has been completed in respect of a county, the digital map becomes the official record and is available for inspection in the PRA's public offices or over the internet to customers who are account holders who can view this information on-line.

When the boundary data in respect of a county is digitised the paper maps for these counties are no longer the official record. They are however retained by the PRA as an archive and, should the need arise, are still available for any clarification that may be required. However, notice would need to be given in order for the maps to be retrieved from the archive storage area.
