Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

Responsibility for foreshore licensing, other than for activities relating to aquaculture and fisheries, is a matter for the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government.

An examination of my Department’s records indicates some correspondence in 2013 from Donegal County Council in relation to the matter referred to by the Deputy. However, the specific information sought is not immediately available and a further in-depth examination of records will be necessary.

My Department will issue a substantive response directly to the Deputy within two weeks.
