The Office of Public Works (OPW) has received no application from Mayo County Council for funding for works to construct a flood wall or to carry out remedial works on Sea Road, Belmullet.

I am advised that localised flooding is a matter for the Local Authority in the first instance.

However, it is open to the Local Authority to apply for OPW funding for viable flood mitigation measures which meet the criteria of the OPW Minor Flood Mitigation Works and Coastal Protection Scheme.
