The latest funding assistance scheme for upgrading and maintaining your protected structure have been released by the ‘Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht’
“The Built Heritage Investment Scheme is designed to assist with the repair and conservation of structures that are protected under the Planning and Development Acts. In certain cases, the scheme also supports the conservation of structures within Architectural Conservation Areas (ACAs) where, in the opinion of the local authority, a need for works to enhance the character and appearance of an ACA has been demonstrated. The primary purpose of the scheme is to support privately owned properties in need of repair and conservation.
Projects that incorporate a traditional skills training element may also be supported by this fund. Any such projects must be agreed in advance by the Department and the relevant local authority.”
- Protected structures. Structures included in the Record of Protected Structures (RPS) of each Local Authority area
