Written answers (Question to Arts)

Part IV of the Planning and Development Acts 2000, as amended, provides for the protection of architectural heritage and gives local planning authorities primary responsibility to identify and protect architectural heritage by including structures on the Record of Protected Structures. The making of an addition to, or a deletion from, the Record of Protected Structures is a reserved function of the relevant planning authorities.

Kiltoghert Creamery, Carrick-on-Shannon is not included on the Record of Protected Structures for County Leitrim and I refer the Deputy to Leitrim County Council as the appropriate body for further information in relation to this structure.
