I can confirm that an Expression of Interest to be included in my Department's Walk Scheme has been received by my Department in respect of the project referred to by the Deputy. 

A general review of the Walks Scheme is currently in train and decisions in respect of the inclusion of additional trails, based on Expressions of Interest received, will be taken following the completion of that review. 

It is anticipated that the review process which is being undertaken by an external consultant for my Department will be concluded in the final quarter of this year.
