Flood Prevention Measures
88. To ask the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform when works will be commenced by Meath County Council following a successful voluntary homeowners relocation scheme application by persons (details supplied); and if he will make a statement on the matter. [12723/20]
Having identified the property in question for consideration, Meath County Council applied for funding under the Remedial Works element of the 2017 Voluntary Homeowners Relocation Scheme.
The application was approved by the Commissioners of Public Works in Ireland on the 5th December 2019.
I have been advised by Meath County Council that it aims to begin the process of engaging Consulting Engineers to carry out detailed design on this project in mid-July. The Council will endeavour to expedite the process of engagement of Consultants and Contractors toward commencing works in the last quarter 2020.
