Town and Village Renewal Scheme 2018

TOWN AND VILLAGE RENEWAL SCHEME 2018

The Town and Village Renewal Scheme is an initiative under the Government’s Action Plan for Rural Development, Realising our Rural Potential, and is part of a package of national and local support measures to rejuvenate rural towns and villages throughout Ireland.

The Town and Village Renewal Scheme will be funded by the Department of Rural and Community Development and will be administered through Louth County Council. 

Selection of projects under the Town & Village Renewal Scheme for 2018 will be by means of a competitive process. Full involvement by community interests and business interests will be an essential feature of successful projects. Successful proposals will include activities which have clear positive economic impacts on the town/village.

Full details of the scheme are available here or on request by email to Barry.Eaton@louthcoco.ie The Council wish to receive Expressions of Interest (EOI’s) which are available to download here.

Louth County Council will be hosting an information session for all interested groups in the Market House, Dunleer, Co Louth on Thursday 10th May 2018 at 6:30pm.

EOI’s should be returned to Barry Eaton, Town & Village Renewal Scheme Applications, Community Section, Louth County Council, County Hall, Dundalk, Co. Louth by 4pm on Wednesday 30th May 2018. EOI’s will not be considered after this date.
