Council invites applications for Local Improvement Scheme

12 February 2018

Clare County Council is inviting applications for the Local Improvement Scheme (LIS) to facilitate works being carried out to non-public roads.

Non-public roads often lead to houses and important community amenities such as graveyards, beaches, piers and rural recreational locations, while they may also provide access to parcels of land, or provide access for harvesting purposes (including turf or seaweed).

"We are confident that this scheme will be of great benefit in dealing effectively with the issue of upgrading many non public roads which play a very important role in our rural communities,” commented Councillor Tom McNamara, Mayor of Clare.

He continued, “Clare County Council applied for and received almost €868,000 in national funding for the Local Improvement Scheme in late 2017 and all these monies were used in carrying out works to non-public roads. We are hopeful that further national monies will be made available in 2018 to meet the very significant demand which exists for this scheme.”

Applications are being invited before the closing date of 29 March 2018. Each application will be assessed and eligible works will be prioritised. Clare County Council will consider applications for funding subject to the necessary national funding being provided. Any applications submitted to Clare County Council under previous LIS schemes many years ago cannot now be considered and accordingly therefore, applicants are invited to submit new applications.
