An application for the Forest Road scheme was received on 26 September. There were a number of queries on the initial application but these have been resolved by the Registered Forester. The application will now be advertised on my Department’s website and referred to a forestry inspector. The inspector will assess the application taking into account the submissions received and make recommendations. The applicant will be advised of the decision on the application when it is finalised.
