This fund applies to groups of businesses, management companies or individual business that are in a position to upgrade the public exterior of the industrial estate.
The scheme is open to occupiers within industrial areas that wish to carry out certain works to improve the area of industrial estate they occupy, or the public facing element of their own individual premises. Preference will be given to groups of companies who come together or collaborate to improve a wider area.
What types of works will be funded?
It is South Dublin County Council’s position not to be overly prescriptive with regard to eligible works. However the following criteria can be used as a guide to what may or may not be considered acceptable works.
Work should be public facing and improve the visual appearance and aesthetics of an area (works proposed to benefit singular premises will not be given the same priority as works that will improve the general appearance of a wider area with the exception of large scale sites that impact widely within any particular industrial area.
Acceptable work may include, but not be limited to: landscaping, footpath works and minor roadworks, planting, boundary treatment, fencing, permeability schemes including desired footpaths and access to amenities and retail areas, painting, and provision of screened serviced areas.
Any physical work, within the parameters defined, that will revitalise an industrial area will be considered.
Only work/ expenditure carried out after a successful application can be considered for support under this scheme
*Large scale projects will be assessed on a case-by-case basis for additional support.
