The Office of Public Works, together with the Department of Justice and Equality and An Garda Síochána are working closely in delivering the Government approved Garda Capital Plan 2016-2021.

While no new premises are listed for Co. Meath, significant works are in the development stage for Navan Garda Station to include a new cell block, custody facilities and additional accommodation.

Works at Ashbourne Garda Station have been completed under the cell upgrade programme and there are similar cell upgrade works planned for Kells Garda Station.

The Office of Public Works also provides a full maintenance service at all seventeen Garda Stations in County Meath to the highest standards possible bearing in mind the availability of funding and priorities agreed with An Garda Síochána.
