Delighted to see that funding has been announced for Portarlington & Castledermot under the €7 million Streetscape Enhancement Initiative to improve the local streetscape.
The funding from the Department of Rural Development is to fund projects including the likes of the following:
Strategic collaboration between property owners to paint buildings or shopfronts in vibrant colours
Commissioning of murals in towns and villages
Upgrade or restoration of historic/traditional shopfronts
Provision of street planting, shrubbery, trees and flowers boxes
Illumination and lighting of architectural features
Installation of canopies and street furniture
Decluttering of streetscapes with removal of unnecessary signs / wires
Looking forward to seeing the positive changes the funding will make in both Castledermot & Portarlington!
