Written answers (Question to Public)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 100 to 102, inclusive, together.

Capital expenditure and investment on flooding projects and associated flood risk management measures and programmes for 2018 was €64.64m.

The allocation for flood relief projects and associated flood risk management measures in the 2019 Revised Estimates Volume is €73.127m.

Table 1 below sets out the capital allocation for the flood risk management area for the period 2020 to 2027 as allowed for in the National Development Plan 2018 - 2027.

Table 1



















The above allocations will allow the Office of Public Works (OPW) in collaboration with Local Authorities to continue implementation of its comprehensive programme of investment in flood relief schemes nationally as I announced in May 2018 at the launch of the 29 Flood Risk Management Plans under the CFRAM Programme. This programme amounts to €1 billion approximately and includes over 150 individual flood relief projects which I and the Government are committed to implementing within the timeframe of the National Development Plan. In addition to these projects the OPW will continue to fund Local Authorities to undertake eligible local flood relief projects up to a limit of €750,000 under the Minor Flood Mitigation Works and Coastal Protection Scheme.

Table 2 below sets out the projects currently at construction along with their anticipated completion dates based on best information currently available.

Table 3 below sets out the projects which are planned for the period up to 2027. Work is already underway in a significant number of these, with the remaining projects being progressed at various times over the period in question, as resources allow. At this point, it is not possible to identify the specific timeline to implementation for each individual project.
