Dáil Éireann Debate
347. Deputy Róisín Shortall asked the Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Innovation if he will report on a recent planning permission obtained by Enterprise Ireland for works to their premises on Old Finglas Road, Dublin 11; the estimated cost of these works; if it is intended to proceed with them in view of the changed economic cost of these works and pressure of departmental budgets; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [47210/10]
Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Innovation (Deputy Batt O’Keeffe): Following an application by Enterprise Ireland (EI), planning permission was granted by An Bord Pleanala on September 27th 2010, for a new vehicular entrance to their site on Old Finglas Road, Dublin 11.
The purpose of this new vehicular entrance and associated works is to facilitate the continued operation of the National Metrology Laboratory of Ireland, (NML) as a stand alone entity, on the Glasnevin site, following its transfer from EI to the National Standards Authority of Ireland (NSAI). The completion of this work is critically important to allow the NML operate in an efficient and secure environment.
