Written answers (Question to Environment)

In the context of the LEADER elements of the Rural Development Programme (RDP), projects that request funding of €150,000 or more require final approval from my Department after Local Development Company (LDC) Board approval. The assessment of these higher value projects usually involves detailed consultations between my Department and the relevant LDC. In the context of the project referred to in the question, the request for approval was received on 31July 2013 and is currently under assessment.
