Forestry and Woodlands
Commercial forestry can have serious negative environmental impacts. Native woodlands receive too little promotion and attention in Ireland.
Our Response to the Public Consultation on Forestry Appeals
An Taisce considers that this Heads of Bill (“Heads”) presents a significant erosion of the public’s right to access justice and participate in the Irish forestry planning process.
If passed, the Bill would drastically reduce the ability of ordinary citizens and environmental NGOs to take appeals on forestry decisions which have potentially negative environmental consequences.
