Old Court Woods Update, 22 June 2020

Great news for Old Court Woods at Garryduff People power wins out! Officially, the application for the road has been withdrawn 🙂

I look forward to engaging with An Coillte at the Local Area Committee Meeting in the days to come. There are alot of questions to ask on what their future plans are.

I received the email below this morning.

“Dear Sir/Madam,

I refer to an application for a forest road licence, reference CN86326, and to your recent submission.
The Department has been advised by the applicant that they have decided to withdraw this application.
The Department will therefore not consider the application further.
