There was good news for 6 Tipperary Towns that were nominated by Tipperary County Council for the Streetscape Enhancement initiative. Today Minister for Rural and Community Development, Heather Humphreys TD, has confirmed that she has extended the deadline for completion of works under the €7 million Streetscape Enhancement Initiative to 31st December 2021.
Announcing the change, Minister Humphreys said:
I have no doubt that the works funded will make a big impact on the appearance of our towns and villages. Given the challenges faced by many property owners in delivering their projects within the required timeframe, I am pleased to be able to extend the deadline for completion of works until the end of the year.
Under the scheme, property owners in the selected towns are being provided with funding to improve the facades of their buildings, carry out artwork and install features such as canopies and street furniture. The deadline for completion of works has now been extended to 31st December 2021. County Tipperary was allocated €320,000 for the Scheme and this was allocated as follows – Roscrea 19 properties allocated €75,100, Nenagh 40 properties €86,209, Carrick On Suir 45 properties allocated €43, 681, Cashel 18 properties allocated €53,624, Cahir 15 properties allocated €43, 840, and Rosegreen 3 properties allocated €14,500.
