Following meetings between Galway County Council, the Office of the Chief State Solicitor and my Department, advice has been received from the Office of the Attorney General on issues that were pertinent to the contractual arrangements reached between Galway County Council and a private developer in relation to the project. This advice has been conveyed to Galway County Council, which has been asked for alternative proposals as to how the project might be advanced. These proposals are awaited.
