Written answers (Question to Public)

Following the Programme for Government commitment to establish a pilot scheme to reopen six (6) Garda Stations, The Office of Public Works (OPW) has now received a "brief of requirements" from An Garda Síochána for the re-opening of Stepaside Garda Station. The OPW can now carry out the necessary surveys and assessments on the building and prepare indicative cost estimates for any works identified.

At this early stage in the process it is not possible to provide an estimate of the costs nor time-frame for its re-opening.
