Proposals invited for Town and Village Renewal projects

first_imgDonegal County Council is looking to hear about projects that have the potential to enhance towns and villages across the county as part of the new Town and Village Renewal Scheme.Projects that support entrepreneurship or that develop specific sectors such as artisan food hubs or craft hubs or heritage and tourism type initiatives in towns and villages with populations of less than 10,000 are being encouraged to come forward with an expression of interest.Other types of activities such as town centre initiatives, town safety and accessibility enhancements and improvement of leisure and recreational facilities are also being considered. “We are keen to hear from projects that will enhance and develop towns and villages socially, economically and culturally and proposals should include activities which will have clear positive economic impacts on the town” says Liam Ward, Director of Service in Donegal County Council.“Funding ranging from €20,000 to €100,000 is available for towns and villages and funding of up to €200,000 will also be considered for a limited number of projects which can deliver exceptionally strong economic benefit to a town and its outlying areas”.This scheme is being funded by the Department of Rural and Community Development with Donegal County Council administering the scheme in Donegal.Groups who may have a suitable project should submit an expression of interest by 5pm on Monday 28 May 2018. Expressions of interest will be assessed based on agreed priorities and a maximum of 12 proposals may be selected for further development into detailed applications which will be submitted to the Department of Rural and Community Development for further assessment.For further information visit www.donegalcoco.ie .Proposals invited for Town and Village Renewal projects was last modified: May 10th, 2018 by Chris McNultyShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
