Streetscapes & Shopfronts Initiative 2021

ShopFrontFunding Announced for Shopfronts

A new scheme aimed at giving the towns and villages of rural Ireland a facelift through refreshing the front of premises has this week been announced by Minister Heather Humphreys’ Department of Rural & Community Development. Streetscape Enhancement Initiative will provide funding to property owners to improve the facades of their buildings, and is part of the government’s ‘Our Rural Future’ initiative.

In Co. Monaghan, three towns have been selected to benefit from the scheme: Monaghan town,

Ballybay and Carrickmacross. An allocation of €220,000 has been made to the county, and Monaghan County Council has been tasked with preparing schemes for each town which will make best use of the available funding.

Monaghan County Council is now inviting premises owners to make contact if they are interested in participating in the Scheme. At this initial stage, detailed documentation is not required, just an idea of what you want to do, and how much it is going to cost.
