It has been confirmed that a new €80 million scheme aimed at rejuvenating urban and village centres is soon to be rolled out.
Deputy Joe Carey received confirmation of these plans in reply to a recent parliamentary question, which he tabled to the Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government, Alan Kelly.
The Fine Gael TD said, “There is a clear need in my view to provide funding to improve streetscapes and public space infrastructure similar to that previously provided for under the Urban & Village Renewal Scheme.
“Many town and village centres, streets and recreational areas throughout County Clare are screaming out for an injection of funding. The introduction of this scheme is welcome news. I look forward to Clare County Council identifying appropriate projects and to successfully drawing down much needed funding to improve our town and village public space infrastructure.”
