Project description:   Deforestation                            Reference ERA20/21-88


Location :     Annaghilly North, Rosslea             Area : 3.3 hectares        Grid ref  : H 48235 32756


Forest Service, an Agency of the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs previously provided an opinion on an a deforestation project of 3.3 hectares in respect of the Environmental Impact Assessment (Forestry) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2006 (as amended). It was concluded that the project was a relevant project due to its likely significant effect on the environment arising from its possible impact on water quality. An application for consent is required before a relevant project can proceed. This is achieved through the preparation of an environmental statement addressing any issue of concern. An environmental statement has now been submitted for Annaghilly North.


The Department is now consulting on the additional information provided and will consider all responses before deciding whether to grant consent. Where no objection in relation to the likely environmental effects of the project is made, consent will be granted and the project will proceed as the project is unlikely to have significant effects on the environment in NI or the RoI.


The additional information has been placed on the Department’s website https://www.daera-ni.gov.uk/articles/environmental-impact-assessments   


Any person wishing to comment on the likely environmental effects of the above project may do so in writing by 3 July 2022 to Forest Service, Policy and Regulation Branch, Inishkeen House, Killyhevlin, Enniskillen, Co. Fermanagh BT74 4EJ or by emailing forest.regulation@daera-ni.gov.uk.
