As part of the Government programme, the Office of Public Works has been requested to progress the reopening of six former Garda Stations, including the Garda Station at Bawnboy, Co. Cavan. A brief of requirements was received from An Garda Síochána and a full technical assessment has been completed. The deliberative process between An Garda Síochána and OPW to finalise proposals for the re-opening is well underway. Upon final sign-off by An Garda Síochána, OPW expects to submit the necessary Part 9 planning application over the coming months and, on approval, will then progress the procurement of works required to re-open the Station. It is expected that all works will be undertaken and completed by mid 2020.
