BOC writes:

Consultations are currently open on a bill to change the appeals process for forestry licences.

The proposed changes seek to make it harder to appeal licence decisions for forestry projects (such as sitka spruce plantations) by introducing eligibility criteria for individuals of NGOs, as well as proposing the introduction of fees to file an appeal.

Consultation on changes (at links below) close this Friday. Please share. Thank you

    Email sent also.

    Anyone know if there are any online lists of TD’s and Councillor email addresses by electoral area that can just be copied and pasted? Thanks.

    Why such a short notice threshold, surely the consultation time should be several months
    and who is running the Dept of Agriculture, hardly Pippa Hackett, large swathes of the
    country have been destroyed by forestry owned by hidden speculator’s being given
    generous planting subsidiaries by the EU and topped by the Irish Taxpayer
