Senator Garret Ahearn said “€100,000 in funding has been allocated to Roscrea
to deliver the first ever Town Centre First Plans, which will be key to tackling
dereliction and revitalising town centres across the country. This is a significant
amount of money and will make a big difference to the town
Senator Ahearn continued “This funding is part of €2.6 million countrywide
package with 26 towns each receiving €100,000. Each town selected as part of
this initiative has its own strengths and each will face different challenges as it
maps out its future path. No one size fits all policy will work.
“These new Plans announced will form part of the Government’s wider Town
Centre First Policy which will be published in the coming months in conjunction
with the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage.
“Tipperary County Council will now work closely with local community groups,
retailers and the other members of the Town Teams in devising and delivering on
the objectives of their plans for the town. Senator Garret Ahearn concluded
