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

Responsibility for the administration of the Rural Water Programme, which includes small public sewerage schemes such as this one, has been devolved to local authorities since 1997.

The selection and approval of individual schemes for advancement and funding under the programme, within the overall priorities set by my Department and subject to the block grant allocation provided is, therefore, a matter for the local authorities, Kildare County Council in this case.
