The Commissioners of Public Works have agreed terms for the purchase of a site for the new Garda station. The Chief State Solicitor and the vendor's solicitor are settling the details of the contract for sale. This is expected to be signed shortly. The sale is conditional on the provision by the vendor of an access road to the site.
