Please see attached table showing the breakdown for each county of EIA screening applications received and approved between the years 2011 and 2022 (year to date).

Since the introduction of the EIA (Agriculture) Regulations, my Department has worked to strengthen the checks being carried out on screening applications under the legislation to ensure a thorough examination of any potential environmental impacts that may arise from the proposed works. In addition, my officials will shortly commence a full review of the regulations and their implementation.
