DAFM releases New Information on NIS Requirements for Licence Applications 

DAFM have updated the information required in Forestry Licence applications for Tree Felling and Forest Roading and are asking that Natura Impact Statements (NIS) should only be provided if specifically sought by the Department, and to ensure that Harvesting Plans are up to the standard outlined in 'Standards for Felling and Reforestation (2019)'.

For further information see Circular 8/2021

Note that 'Applications with NISs currently with the Department will continue to be prioritised.'
