Mr. J. O’Keeffe Mr. J. O’Keeffe
Mr. J. O’Keeffe asked the Minister for Communications, Marine and Natural Resources his views on whether the compliance issues relating to the existing licensed areas within Ardgroom Harbour have been resolved; his further views on whether the application by a person (details supplied) for an aquaculture licence lodged in 2004 will be considered; and the steps he will take to ensure the determination of this application without further delays. [25428/06]
Mr. Browne Mr. Browne
Mr. Browne: At present there is substantial non-compliance by existing operators in respect of a range of issues all of which impact on the efficient and effective use of the harbour generally for aquaculture. Pending a satisfactory resolution of the compliance issues it is considered that the site proposed by the applicant will add to the dangers presented to navigation in the harbour. As the Deputy has already been informed, efforts to resolve the overall situation are ongoing.
Mr. O’Shea Mr. O’Shea
Mr. O’Shea asked the Minister for Communications, Marine and Natural Resources the proposals he has to provide funding for the dredging of Dungarvan Harbour, County Waterford in the National Development Plan 2007-2013; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [25429/06]
Mr. Browne Mr. Browne
Mr. Browne: Dungarvan Harbour is owned by Waterford County Council and responsibility for its repair and maintenance rests with the local authority in the first instance. My Department has not, to date, received any proposals from Waterford County Council in relation to the dredging of Dungarvan Harbour. The financial envelope including funding requirements for the Fishery Harbour Measure under the NDP 2007 to 2013 is currently being formulated.
