€7 million fund announced this morning

Sallins & Castledermot here in Co. Kildare, are among 124 towns & villages that will benefit from The Streetscape Enhancement Initiative.

This morning, Minister for Rural and Community Development, Heather Humphreys, announced the new €7 million fund to support the enhancement of streetscapes and shopfronts.

The initiative is part of 'Our Rural Future' & is designed to make rural towns and villages more attractive places to live, work & visit.

In neighbouring Wicklow, Baltinglass town centre & Blessington will also receive funding, as will Arklow, Enniskerry Village Centre, Kilcoole & Wicklow town.

In Carlow, Rathvilly, Leighlinbridge, Bagenalstown & Tullow were selected.

As were Laois' Mountrath, Mountmellick, Rathdowney, Ballinakill & Ballylinan.

Under the scheme, "property owners will be provided with funding to improve the facades of their buildings, carry out artwork and install features such as canopies and street furniture."

The 124 towns and villages were selected by each local authority, which will now begin the process of advertising locally for applications.
