The Chief State Solicitor's Office on behalf of the Department has been engaging with the property owners' legal representative on the draft lease for some time and the vast majority of the clauses in the draft lease are agreed. The Department has also engaged directly with the property owners’ legal representative with a view to facilitating agreement on the small few outstanding terms of the draft lease, so that the lease can be finalised and executed. The Department expects that the lease will be finalised and executed in the short term.
