Minister for the Environment and Local Government (Mr. Dempsey): Information on Noel Dempsey  Zoom on Noel Dempsey  The Kilkenny County Council compulsory purchase order No. 1 of 1998 was confirmed, subject to modification on 13 December 1999, by me having regard to the objections made and to the inspector's report of the public local inquiry. The administration of the order is a matter for the local authority. As soon as may be after confirmation of a CPO the local authority must publish notice of the confirmation and serve a notice on every person having an interest in the land who, having given notice to the Minister of his objection to the order, appeared at the public local inquiry in support of his objection. Any person aggrieved by the order may, within three weeks of this publication, challenge the CPO by an application to the High Court. A copy of the inspector's report will be made available to the person referred to on request.
