And now a Cork County Council scheme to encourage homeowners in local villages to spruce up their streets has been extended to include a number of new areas for 2022.
Following on from the success of the 2021 Shop Front Improvement Scheme and Residential Painting Scheme, members of Cork County Council’s Carrigaline Municipal District have agreed to allocate a further €20,000 towards the scheme for 2022.
In addition to Carrigaline, Passage West, Glenbrook, Monkstown and Crosshaven, the scheme will also be extended to the villages of Ballygarvan and Ballinhassig.
Homeowners can apply for direct financial assistance to rejuvenate town centre properties and help attract and retain footfall in their areas.
The Chair of Carrigaline MD, Cllr. Marcia D’Alton, noted the value that the scheme has brought to the towns and villages in the Municipal District and particularly how the scheme has really brightened up her hometown of Passage West, “adding vivacity, colour and character”.
Applicants from Carrigaline Municipal District can apply for the scheme (before Friday, May 27th, 2022 at 4.30pm) by emailing [email protected]
