My Department received a report from Senior Counsel in June 2017 regarding his Review Into Certain Planning Matters In Respect Of County Donegal.

My Department is currently reviewing and assessing the contents of Senior Counsel’s report and I have requested the advice of the Attorney General in respect of a number of points in relation to publication of the report among other matters.

I have asked the Attorney General's Office to expedite this advice. Once received, my Department will finalise a submission for my consideration regarding what further appropriate actions are open to me and the associated timelines.
