The refurbishment and upgrade of Newcastle West Garda Station is included in the  Capital Investment Plan 2016-2021 for An Garda Síochána. The Office of Public Works  has completed  a feasibility study  on the redevelopment of the Station based on a brief of requirements received from An Garda Síochána.  The feasibility study  has identified that a new Station can be built on the existing site. The Office of Public Works has since appointed  a Design Team to progress this project and is engaging with An Garda Síochána on the detailed design phase of the proposed new Station building.
