Department of Rural and Community Development
The construction of a new helipad referred to by the Deputy is a project being undertaken by Mayo County Council, with financial assistance from my Department.
My Department provided funding for the purchase of land for this project in late 2020. I have been informed that Mayo County Council are working to finalise a detailed design and to prepare tender documents for the helipad's construction at present. It is anticipated that tendering for this project will be undertaken in the near future.
My officials will continue to work closely with Mayo County Council to progress this important project.
