Written answers (Question to Public)

The Office of Public Works, through the Arterial Drainage Acts, has submitted the proposal for the Glashaboy Flood Relief Scheme to the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform for formal Confirmation.  The Minister will, over the coming months, undertake an environmental assessment of the proposed scheme.  This assessment will be in line with required legislative requirements and will involve a public consultation.   The appointment of a Contractor will be progressed for this scheme following formal Ministerial Confirmation.

 The flood relief scheme will be funded from within the allocated €1 billion for flood risk management over the period 2018-2027.
