€140,000 for the repair and conservation of protected structures in the North County – FARRELL
Jobs for tradespeople and craft workers in the local economy
Fine Gael TD for Dublin Fingal, Alan Farrell, has welcomed the news that €140,000 in funding is to be granted for the repair and conservation of eleven buildings and structures in the North County under the Built Heritage Jobs Leverage Scheme (BHJLS) 2014. The scheme, which is funded from the National Lottery License transaction, will oversee the construction and repair of 618 historic structures around the country. The public funds provided will be matched by private funding and the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht estimate that the €5 million BHJLS will unlock €16 million in private funding for these projects.
“I am delighted that eleven Fingal buildings and structures are to benefit from grant aid this year under the Built Heritage Jobs Leverage Scheme.
“The scheme, which is operated by The Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, has allocated €140,000 to the North County for 2014.
“The purpose of this fund is to ensure that works take place to safeguard structures protected under the Planning and Development Acts 2000-2011. This can include structures within Architectural Conservation Areas.
“It is crucially important that we protect and conserve our heritage buildings. This measure has a doubly positive impact in that it will also create jobs in the local economy. Indeed when the scheme was first launched, one of its stated aims was to support the employment of skilled and experienced conservation professionals, craft workers and tradespeople.
“The properties listed for funding will be formally contacted by County County in the near future to discuss the process for acquiring this funding.”
