Question: Councillor M. Baker:
To ask the Manager when will the National Inventory of Architectural Hertitage Survey be completed for our County?
Contact was made with Mr. W. Cumming, from the National Inventory of Architectural Heritage Dept of Arts, Heritage & the Gaeltacht in response to this question. As their primary function is to aid Local Authorities in compiling their Record of Protected Structured (RPS), they decided that their work should initially focus on counties that did not have or have a very limited RPS. Therefore, they havec onsciously left Dublin City and Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown to last, as both counties already have a significant Record of Protected Structures.The NIAH have set out their work programme for 2012, therefore it is anticipated that, funding permitting, they will commence the fieldwork for Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown in 2013.
