Co. Tipperary Landmark Secures Over 1.2 Million For Redevelopment

202

A landmark building in Tipperary is to receive €1,209,000 funding, which will go towards redevelopment.

The allocation from the Dept. of Rural and Community will see the former Rialto (ree-al·tow) Cinema in Nenagh provide a digital and enterprise hub in the town centre.  

It also includes plans for the redevelopment of a brownfield site behind the hub, a new streetscape and exploring the potential provision of town centre housing and new public amenity.

Nationally 21.5 million euro has been given to 27 projects through the Rural Regeneration Development Fund.

There was disappointment for Tipperary town today following the announcement.

Tipperary County Council are understood to have submitted 3 projects to the Department including the Tipperary Town Revitalisation project that included the Canon Hayes Recreation Centre, The Dan Breen House, The Tipperary Equine Outdoor Experience at the Racecourse and the Tipperary Hills.

The January meeting of the Tipperary town Taskforce is scheduled for this evening and a response from the Taskforce is expected following the meeting.

The applications for funding were subjected to a comprehensive assessment process by the Department, with oversight provided by an independent Project Advisory Board, along with external independent experts.

Details of the department rating will be relayed back to the council in few weeks’ time which may lead to the projects being resubmitted at the next call for applications.
