If so, please confirm applicant ,provide copies of associated paperwork, and confirm if any costs were apportioned to the ratepayers of N & M area.

Dear DoF FOI,
Your reply does not stipulate an email address to use, if you are not in a position to answer.
The sign is at the entrance to St Christopher's park beside the canal ,and across from both Buttercrane and Quays shopping centers. It appears to be advertising the Cooley area though I have no idea how planning was given, if indeed it was.

Yours sincerely,

Maria O Callaghan

Dear DoF FOI,

In a word, no !
The whole point of what do they know is the anonymity it provides.
