I propose to take Questions Nos. 2846 and 2898 together.

The capital expenditure provisions for my Department over the period 2020-22, as set out in the Mid-year Expenditure Report 2019, are provided in the following table (no specific Departmental allocations were made in respect of 2023 and 2024):

Capital Allocations 2020-22 (€m)

2020

2021

2022

Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government

2,205

2,269

2,280

The capital allocation for 2020 set out in the Mid-year Expenditure Report 2019 does not take into account a further €13m of drawdown under the Urban Regeneration and Development Fund that was re-profiled from 2019 to 2020, without delay to any URDF projects, as part of the process of accommodating the additional cost pressures arising from the National Children’s Hospital project - this €13m adjustment to the 2020 figure will be reflected at Budget time.

These funding allocations will be used to advance capital investment across a range of programme areas within my Department’s remit, including local authority housing, voluntary housing, estate regeneration, the Local Infrastructure Housing Activation Fund, urban regeneration and development, water and wastewater services, and fire and emergency services. Details of specific allocations towards individual programmes will be finalised as part of the annual Estimates processes, as normal.
