Paint the town any colour
A paint scheme is back for 2022 which aims to rejuvenate town centres.
Following on from the success of the 2021 Shop Front Improvement Scheme and Residential Painting Scheme, elected 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 the settlements of Carrigaline, Passage West, Glenbrook, Monkstown and Crosshaven, the scheme will also be extended to the villages of Ballygarvan and Ballinhassig. The scheme provides direct financial assistance to property owners in the designated county towns and villages to rejuvenate town centres and in doing so, assists communities in attracting and retaining footfall in their areas. Welcoming the extension of this year’s scheme, Mayor of the County of Cork Cllr Gillian Coughlan said: “Cork County Council’s Shop Front Improvement Scheme and Residential Painting Scheme have added great value to local communities, improving the look and feel of our town and village centres. I’m especially delighted to see the area of this scheme being expanded for 2022 and would encourage eligible business and residential premises owners in Carrigaline Municipal District to apply and utilise the scheme to brighten up our towns and villages.”
The Chair of Carrigaline Municipal District, 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 are welcome to immediately apply for the scheme, with all completed applications to be returned by Friday 27 May at 4.30pm.
