#IFI - Minister for Communications Energy and Natural Resources Pat Rabbitte has welcomed the arrival of Inland Fisheries Ireland (IFI) to its new headquarters at Lake Drive in Citywest.

On its establishment in 2010, IFI had accommodation at three locations in Swords, including leasing a headquarters building, and premises in Glasnevin and Blackrock.

But this year, as part of a strategic rationalisation, and in keeping with Government policy to exit from expensive leases wherever possible, IFI exercised the break clause on the Swords Headquarters when it arose and has already disposed of the Glasnevin premises.

“Accommodation is among the most significant cost components of public sector organisations, and in line with Government policy the board of IFI has undertaken a strategic rationalisation of its Dublin-based accommodation," said the minister.

"Following a review of some 100 options, the board has decided that Citywest is the optimal location."

Minister Rabbitte added that the major factors in this relocation "are the strategic and operational efficiency of Inland Fisheries Ireland as a national body with a strong statutory responsibility serving all parts of the country and the retention and development of invaluable technical, scientific and administrative expertise and experience.

“Citywest ticks all the boxes as regards accessibility, response capability on a country-wide basis, support structures and capacity for widely spread and often remote activities in resource protection, conservation and development.”

The minister's department says the rationalisation and amalgamation of all Dublin property is expected to generate efficiencies and savings over time in relation to lease rents.

In addition, the significantly better energy efficiency of the new headquarters facility in Citywest will be consistent with Government commitments as regards reducing CO2 emissions and energy consumption, will also generate efficiencies.
