DONEGAL has been allocated almost €1.2million as part of a €10.5 million investment in roads and lane ways.
Minister for Rural and Community Development, Heather Humphreys TD, has today announced the county breakdown.
Donegal’s total allocation for 2021 is €1,188,403.
The Local Improvement Scheme (LIS) is designed to support the continued improvement of non-public roads in rural communities and improves access to rural homes and farms, as well as outdoor amenities such as our lakes, rivers, mountains and beaches.
These roads and laneways are not normally maintained by locally authorities but, nonetheless, represent a vital piece of infrastructure for rural residents.
The share of the additional funding that is being allocated to each county under this second round comes following engagement between the Department of Rural and Community Development and local authorities.
The county allocations are based on the level of works that each local authority indicated they could complete before the end of the year.
The higher the level of demand that could be met by a local authority before the end of the year, the higher the level of funding they have been allocated.
