The official detail of the Urban Regeneration & Development Fund has arrived! It includes €1.9m towards the purchase of the #PassageWest dockyard and €750k towards development of the #Carrigaline Western Relief Road in Category A projects. Delighted to see that it also includes funding for planning for improvement to the public realm in #Carrigaline as one of the Category B projects. As the biggest town in the county, Carrigaline deserves that.
(Just to refresh, Category A projects are those that can happen immediately. Category B projects are the preparatory steps necessary to enable bigger projects down the line.)
Great to see funding granted to the Port of Cork and to Irish Rail too for projects that should have positive repercussions on the entire Cork area. Wow 😅 You’ll find a link to the funding announcement that came from government at this link: URDF List for Publication 251118
