Written Answers - Planning Applications.

  254. Mr. Naughten asked the Minister for Finance the reason the Office of Public Works has not responded to a request for further information by the planning authorities in County Leitrim concerning the application for the district veterinary office in Drumshanbo; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [3850/05]

  Mr. Parlon: A request for additional information was received from the planning authorities of Leitrim County Council in regard to the proposed district veterinary office in Drumshanbo on 19 November 2004.

The additional information is substantial in nature and relates to architectural, engineering and site selection issues as well as details concerning the overall land-holdings of the vendor of the site in the area and an indication from the vendor of the proposed future use of these lands.

[472] The Office of Public Works is dealing with these matters and a response will issue as soon as all the necessary information is available.
