Capital Programme

The Capital Programme sets out the proposed major infrastructural projects to be undertaken, subject to funding being available, over a 3 year rolling programme.  In October 2015, the Capital Programme 2016-2018 was presented to and noted by the Councillors.  The Capital Programme 2016 – 2018 identifies 153 individual anticipated projects with an estimated capital spend of €240.6m.

Capital Budget

Capital funding is used to provide infrastructural projects for the Fingal area e.g. housing construction, roads, community/recreational facilities etc.  The delivery of the projects included in the Capital Programme is dependent on funding being available. As the nature of the work is to provide infrastructure, the timing of delivery of projects is affected by any tendering process and/or planning process required.
