There was a mixture of joy, relief and acceptance among the Arklow community last week as An Bord Pleanála finally gave their approval to the Office of Public Works’ (OPW) Flood Relief Scheme plans.

The estimated €28 million investment by the OPW will see Arklow’s river front and harbour undergo major works to improve its flood defences. Wicklow County Council will act as the lead authority in delivering the scheme, with full funding and support provided by the OPW under the Capital Flood Relief Programme.
