Written answers (Question to Housing)

Details of current applications for a foreshore consent and consents granted and executed under the Foreshore Act 1933, as amended are available to view on my Department's website at the following link https://www.gov.ie/en/collection/f2196-foreshore-applications-and-determinations/.

Applications for a foreshore consent made to my Department are subject to a non-statutory pre-application process to enable applicants to engage with officials from my Department to discuss details of the proposed project, technical matters and details of the foreshore consent assessment process among other matters. Following the pre-application process, the application goes through a number of steps as part of the assessment process, including, for example; public and prescribed bodies consultation, environmental assessment, technical input and recommendation from the Marine Licence Vetting Committee, Ministerial determination and, if a consent is approved, execution of the legal instrument.

Attached is a list of relevant foreshore consent applications which have proceeded to full application assessment stage. As proposed projects may be amended or may not proceed to full application stage following initial pre-application consultation, only those foreshore consent applications which have proceeded to full application are included. In this regard, it should be noted that consents granted under section 10 of the Foreshore Act are related to developments on privately owned foreshore and are permanent in nature.
