Written answers (Question to Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government)

Proposals were received by my Department from Cork County Council in August 2002 for the provision of water and sewerage facilities, estimated to cost €1 million, at Ladysbridge under the serviced land initiative measure of the water services investment programme. A proposed water supply scheme to serve Mogeely, Castlemartyr and Ladysbridge, at an estimated cost of €1.6 million, was subsequently submitted by the council under the serviced land initiative in December 2003. The proposals will be further considered on receipt of the additional information requested by my Department from the council in regard to both schemes.
