Stepaside Garda Station Will Reopen!
Construction is underway in Stepaside to bring back our community’s Garda station. Since the end of February work has been progressing on the site to turn the present building into a state of the art 21st century Garda Station.
After their initial assessment, the Office of Public Worksbelieved that getting the original building ready for use would cause years ofdelay. Of course, after suffering without a local Garda Station for over sixyears this could not be countenanced. Our priority was always to see a fullGarda presence back in the heart of Stepaside village and further delays wouldnot be acceptable.
It was accepted that a purpose built station would be builtquickly on the site of the old station. However, the building was vacated somemonths ago and the OPW have been able to access the site more fully.
I can assure you that work is underway and we estimate that Stepaside Garda Station should reopen in the autumn.
As always I will continue to keep you informed on theprogress of our station!
