A screening for appropriate assessment was carried out in relation to the proposed works included in project reference no. SCF-17-0026 (Crolly River). This assessment concluded that there would be no significant impact on the Natura Sites in the vicinity of the works. I can provide a copy of this assessment to the Deputy for his information.

This assessment cost €2,398.50 including VAT to prepare. This was not funded from the allocation provided specifically for the National Strategy For Angling Development.
