€121,500 In Funding Allocated For Flood Works At North Beach In Arklow

Wicklow County Council’s application for funding for these works have been approved under the Office of Public Works’ Minor Flood Mitigation Works and Coastal Protection Scheme. 

Under the scheme, the Office of Public Works (OPW) has approved funding of €121,500 for a coastal erosion risk management investigation and condition survey at Arklow North Beach to Clogga Beach.

Works that are normally the responsibility of the local authorities will generally not be considered for OPW funding.

Where such works would also mitigate the risk of flooding to properties, partial funding may be considered by the OPW.
