Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

The Department received an application for a tree felling licence for the person named in December, 2020.

The application was assigned to the Forestry District Inspector (DI), who assessed the application including examining the proposed operations on their own and in combination with other plans and projects in the area. This assessment is complete and the DI has made their recommendations.

The final processing of the licence is now taking place and it will issue this week.
