Environment office to close

THE ENFO office in Dublin, which provides environmental information to the public, is to be closed by the Department of the Environment next month.

A spokesman for the department said the office, which is on St Andrew Street in the city centre, and is Enfo’s only premises, is being closed as part of a “restructuring” of the services.

Enfo provides information on the environment and climate change and on Irish and European law as it applies to these areas.

The building had held the State’s only public library dedicated to the environment. The department spokesman said the service was moving to more online internet based delivery and that much of the information was already available online.
