My Department has a wide and diverse business agenda, covering a broad range of functions that are delivered primarily by local authorities and bodies under the aegis of my Department.

Details in relation to specific projects (which are being advanced primarily by local authorities and Uisce Éireann) under my Department's range of capital programmes as part of Project Ireland 2040: National Development Plan 2021-2030 are published by the Department of Public Expenditure, NDP Delivery and Reform on their website. The MyProjectIreland Tracker and MyProjectIreland Interactive Map, a citizen-focused interactive map developed as part of Project Ireland 2040 in partnership with the National Mapping Division, Tailte Éireann, provide details of projects around the country. These are both available to be viewed at the following link:


In terms of Social Housing, the Social Housing Construction Status Report is published on a quarterly basis, and provides a breakdown of local authority and approved housing body social housing new-build activity. The most recent publication covers the period up to the end of Q4 2022 and is available at the following link:


With respect to water services projects, the prioritisation and progression of individual projects is a matter for determination by Uisce Éireann (formally Irish Water).  Uisce Éireann has established a team to deal with queries from Oireachtas members on issues arising in relation to its activities.  The team may be contacted via email to oireachtasmembers@water.ie or by telephone on 1890 578 578.Alternatively, Uisce Éireann provides full details of their projects and plans to improve water and wastewater services on their website at the following link:  www.water.ie/projects-plans/.
