To ask the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development to detail the land owned by the Forest Service in the greater Belfast area; and to provide a map detailing this.

The Forest Service agency of my Department, manages approximately
93ha of land in the Greater Belfast area, at Belvoir Park Forest and Hydebank Wood. Approximately 34ha of this land is owned and the remaining 59 ha is leased from the Northern Ireland Housing Executive. A map detailing the total area is attached (placed in library).
