An application was made to my Department by the organisation in question for a foreshore lease in respect of reclamation works. Having considered the application, the Department asked the organisation concerned to provide information on certain matters. A reply was received last month, together with a request that the proposed rental, that had been communicated to the organisation, be reconsidered. The matter is now being reconsidered taking account of this response. A decision on whether the lease will be granted will be conveyed to the organisation as soon as possible.
