THE DEPARTMENT of the Environment's new HQ in Wexford should be ready to be moved into in October, a Fianna Fáil TD has claimed.

Deputy Seán Connick last week met with the Government Minister responsible for the Decentralisation Programme, Dr. Martin Manseragh, to seek an update on the proposed relocation of the Department of Environment's headquarters to a new site on the Newtown Road, Wexford.

According to Deputy Connick, Minister Manseragh informed him that the Office of Public Works had recently held a meeting with the main contractor, Pierse, to discuss the completion of the new building, which will be located beside Wexford County Council's new landmark HQ, which is also under construction at the moment.

'I had a very positive discussion with Minister Manseragh about the relocation of the Department of the Environment to Wexford and he is hopeful that these offices will be ready for occupation from October,' said Deputy Connick.

Deputy Connick said this news 'will also come as a relief to civil servants who are anxiously waiting to move into their new offices in Wexford' who had moved here, but due to the delays now find themselves commuting to Dublin.
