Written answers (Question to Public)

Discussions on the application by Cork County Council for funding under the Office of Public Works Minor Works Scheme for the flood relief works in question have been ongoing for some time. Various technical issues required clarification to enable the application to be properly assessed. On 6th September, 2012, Cork County Council submitted a revised funding application to the OPW under the Minor Works Scheme for the project concerned. The OPW found it necessary again to refer back some technical and cost issues to the Council concerning the proposed project. This was done on the 6th September, and a reply is currently awaited from the Council.

On receipt of the Council’s reply, the OPW will be in a position to further assess the application.
