Cork County Council’s new Painting and Signage Scheme is being run in Passage West and Douglas this year. Under the scheme, either tenants or owners of buildings can get a grant of up to 50% of the cost of painting the on-street facade.
If you have 10 or more adjacent buildings on one street, they will get priority and a grant of 60% will be provided.
Existing plastic, neon signs can be replaced with 50% of the cost of heritage type signs.
If the tenant/owner wants to do the work themselves, up to 50% of the cost of the materials will be provided.
Applications received by the Municipal District Office before 28th April will be given priority. So the earlier you apply, the more likely you are to get grant aid. The application form provides all the details and conditions of the scheme:
