07.06.11 Minister Deenihan announces funding allocation under Heritage Structures at Risk Fund

Jimmy Deenihan, T.D., Minister for Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht today (Tuesday 7th June, 2011), announced the allocations to individual projects under the Department’s Structures at Risk Fund. Grant offers have been made to 23 Local Authorities for 31 conservation projects. The relevant structures are in private and in civic ownership.

Minister said, “This year my Department is in a position to assist with 31 conservation projects. The funding of €650,000 has been allocated to ensure that the most vulnerable aspects of Ireland’s architectural heritage can be preserved. It is important to note that only structures in immediate danger of significant deterioration qualified for consideration under this scheme”

The Structures at Risk Fund is intended to assist with works to safeguard structures protected under the Planning and Development Acts 2000-2010 and, in certain cases, works to structures within Architectural Conservation Areas. Details of the operation of the scheme issued to each local authority in March 2011.
