Ceisteanna (300)

Clare Daly

Ceist:

300. Deputy Clare Daly asked the Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government the discussions to date which have taken place between his Department and Fingal County Council regarding the planned Broadmeadows Way cycle and pedestrian route in County Dublin; his plans to ensure assistance is provided to progress this regional greenway; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

A request was received in September 2018 from Fingal County Council to meet with my Department to discuss the proposal concerned in advance of submitting an application under the Foreshore Act 1933, as amended.  My Department has since been engaging with the local authority in relation to the information that is required to progress the matter.

As the foreshore application is likely to come before me for decision at some point in the future, it would not be appropriate to comment further on the matter at this time.
