This forestry licence application is currently under consideration.

There has been detailed correspondence with the registered forester in relation to this application and a Natura Impact Assessment was submitted to the Department on 16th April, 2019. This has been referred to the Department's ecologist for assessment and a decision on the application will issue when all environmental and other considerations have been considered in full.
