Tipp. Co. Council Seeks To Improve Thurles Streetscape.

Tipperary County Council is seeking to improve the streetscape and public realms of the towns of Thurles through supporting owners of properties to improve and enhance their properties and the public area generally. (This funding obviously comes from savings made by the Templemore / Thurles Municipal District councils failure to erect that couple of meters of bunting during the recent St. Patrick’s Day celebrations in the town.)

Suggested Possible Improvements:

Removal of inappropriate contemporary signage, fittings and general clutter and replacement with shop fascia signage (with an emphasis on hand painted signage).

Painting and general improvements to Commercial and Residential building frontages.

Erection of planters, floral hanging baskets or other environmental improvements.

Speaking of the removal of inappropriate contemporary signage; one wonders will this now see the removal of the long forgotten and neglected array of signage, left decorating the entry routes into the town of Thurles. (Then of course these signs may be left there in an effort to remind our politicians and local councillors of their continued failures over the past 20 years. And people wonder why ‘An Post’ is moving and a beautiful Liberty Square and Friar Street are being totally eradicated by Tipperary Co. Council!)

Grant Aid

Maximum Grant for such improvements is 50% of the approved cost of the works subject to a maximum of €500.00. Priority will be given to applications for properties that are in need of works in order to prevent them from becoming or remaining derelict. (As you can see with regards to dereliction, €250 goes a long way in Thurles if you are strapped for cash.)

Application forms can be found HERE and are also available from the offices of Templemore / Thurles Municipal District council, latter situated at Castle Avenue, in Thurles (Old Library) and any further queries can be directed to Ms Louise Phillips, Tipperary Co. Council, by email at louise.phillips@tipperarycoco.ie or by Telephoning 0761 06 6067.

Completed Application Forms

Completed Application Forms should be clearly marked“Thurles/Templemore Town Enhancement & Painting Scheme 2019” and returned to Ms Janice Gardiner, (Acting District Administrator, Templemore Thurles Municipal District, Castle Avenue, Thurles, Co. Tipperary), by no later than 4.30pm on Friday April 12th. 2019 next.
