Department of Public Expenditure and Reform
Flood Relief Schemes Funding
146. To ask the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform if the OPW has developed a specific cost-benefit analysis for areas impacted by turlough flooding; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [3161/20]
The OPW has not developed a specific cost-benefit analysis for areas impacted by turlough flooding, but all project funding appraisals are required to comply with the general requirements of the updated Public Spending Code, as well as any specific requirements set out in the relevant funding schemes, such as the OPW’s Minor Flood Mitigation Works and Coastal Protection Scheme.
