Department of Public Expenditure and Reform
Garda Station Refurbishment
140. To ask the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform the reason for the delay in developing Newcastlewest Garda station, County Limerick; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [37053/19]
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.
