It's hoped that the building works will take just over 12 months to complete.

Roscommon County Council has approved special planning permission for a new HQ to be developed for the county's Civil Defence.

The Roscommon Municipal district this week approved Part 8 planning for the building on the racecourse road in the town, which is expected to cost an estimated two million euro to develop.

The new base will be able to accommodate all Civil defence vehicles as well as state-of-the-art training rooms, shower facilities, offices and lecture rooms.
