Forest Road Application – 1,775m road in Co. Offaly (Forest Road Application CN92176)

Road is to serve two plantations on cutover bog and traverses the cut-over bog

Details on the FLV.

Look at it with the Bing Maps layer on in the FLV for context.

Should taxpayers money be used to fund what is effectively an emissions project?

2000m of Forest Road in the most benign of locations would require a mandatory EIA. This is not far short in a far from benign location. 

If DAFM FS rejects the application the landowners could be stuck timber that they cannot harvest on the basis of planting on the basis of DAFM FS approval

Real conundrum here for DAFM and one to watch
