Dáil Éireann Debate
67. Mr. Kenny asked the Minister for the Marine and Natural Resources when he expects to issue a foreshore licence to a company (details supplied) for the purpose of providing a cable car to Inisbiggle, County Mayo; if he will expedite this application; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [14615/98]
Consideration of this application had been deferred by my Department pending a decision on the application for planning permission by Mayo County Council. The county council decided on 22 April 1998 to grant permission in respect of a revised application.
The Department subsequently received the appropriate documentation from the applicants on 25 May 1998 and immediately referred it to its specialist advisers for examination. When this examination has been completed it will be necessary to engage in public consultation on the application, including publication of a notice by the applicants in a local newspaper.
Following the public consultation process I will then make a decision on the application, having regard to all aspects of the case, comments made by the public, points made by the applicants and the expert advice which is available to me.
