The projects in­clude util­ity works re­lated to wa­ter sup­ply in the area (EUR 17 mln) and solid waste man­age­ment (EUR 6.5 mln). They also in­clude road works and the con­struc­tion of new po­lice HQ in Par­al­imni, at an es­ti­mated cost of EUR 4.3 mln. Ef­forts are also be­ing made to se­cure funds for the con­struc­tion of a new Fa­m­a­gusta Dis­trict Court worth EUR 6 mln.
