Forestry Act (Northern Ireland) 2010 Explanatory Notes

Section 19 – Deferred decision on an application for felling licence

There is provision for the Department to give notice to an applicant within 3 months, or within a further agreed time, or the application will be deemed to have been refused.

If it appears that the applicant does not have an estate in the land and could not therefore comply with conditions of a licence, the Department may postpone consideration of the application until the relevant person has become a party to the application.
