Town/Village Funding

Vibrant Towns & Villages as Hubs of Activity

The aim is to improve the fabric of rural towns and villages and their hinterlands. This will be achieved through improvements to streetscapes, creation of recreational spaces, re-generation and upgrading of heritage and other buildings. Creating vibrant towns and villages throughout the county will have wide ranging economic and social benefits for both the local communities and businesses in the area.

Capital projects will be supported to allow for vibrant shared community and public spaces to become focal points for both economic and social interaction to be enjoyed by all. Linkages to and connectivity between town/village centres and community/recreation facilitates on the outskirts of towns/villages is fundable. It will also focus on improved safety and access for the wide range of users of these amenities and facilities. Training and developmental supports are available to build upon and showcase the distinctive character and unique selling points of our towns and villages both economically and socially.
