Environmental designations are knocking up to €5,000/ac off the value of land, auctioneers have claimed.

Estate agents claimed that land suitable for forestry is generally making between €4,000/ac and €6,000/ac. However, if the ground is designated as a Special Area of Conservation (SAC) or a Special Protected Area (SPA), the value falls to €700-800/ac.
