Scheme open to residential and commercial property owners

Wednesday, 17th April, 2019 4:16pm

Properties in two historic areas of Cork city could be set for a face lift.

Cork City Council has announced details of the 2019 Painting Grant Scheme for two identified areas, the Shandon and Leitrim Street areas and Barrack Street and Bandon Road areas.

The grant scheme is open to residential and commercial property owners.

Successful applicants will be awarded 50 per cent of the costs of qualifying improvement works, like painting, joinery and minor external repairs to render, gutters, downpipes, and up to the maximum value of €1,250 per building.

The aim of the grant scheme is to encourage investment in and improve the character and appearance of historic areas of the city as part of a wider regeneration programme, and to help instil pride and confidence in these neighbourhoods.

This Cork City Council initiative is in its 11th consecutive year and forms part of a wider regeneration programme that includes the Built Heritage Investment Scheme and the Living City Initiative.

More than 300 buildings have benefitted from the Paint Grant Scheme in the previous 10 years.

Applications are now open until 4pm on Tuesday 30 April. Completed Application forms should be sent to the Planning Policy Section, SPED, City Hall.
