NOTE: The Office of Public Works through the Arterial Drainage Acts has submitted the proposal for the Glashaboy Flood Relief Scheme to the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform for formal Confirmation. In May 2020, the Office of Public Works received correspondence from the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform that an independent assessment has been conducted and, pursuant to section 7(B) sub-section 4 of the 2019 European Union (Environmental Impact Assessment) (Arterial Drainage) Regulations, certain items of further information are requested to complete the process.
The additional information requested generally relates to further detail on the processes followed and assessments undertaken in developing the scheme. The additional information is to be submitted to the Department in order that the assessment can be completed and the scheme confirmed by the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform. This information is currently scheduled to be provided to the Department no later than October 2020.
The appointment of a Contractor for this scheme will be progressed following formal Ministerial Confirmation.
The scheme will be funded from within the allocated €1 billion for flood risk management over the period 2018 – 2027. Provision for the cost of the Scheme is included in the Office of Public Works' multi annual capital allocation.
