The Programme for a Partnership Government commits to requesting the Policing Authority to oversee a review of ‘both the boundaries of Garda districts and the dispersement of Garda stations in rural areas and in developing urban and suburban areas with a view to ensuring both an efficient and optimum geographical distribution of stations’.  In this regard, the Acting Garda Commissioner has requested the Office of Public Works not to dispose of any further former Garda stations. 

In light of this request from An Garda Síochána and pending the outcome of this further review of closed Garda stations, the Commissioners of Public Works have no plans at this time to dispose of any other former Garda stations that were closed as part of An Garda Síochána’s 2012 and 2013 Rationalisation Programme.
