€1,200 cap on contributions by individuals introduced

The Minister for Rural and Community Development, Michael Ring TD, has today (Thursday, 7 February) announced that he will make €10 million available in a new round of funding for Local Improvement Schemes (LIS). This will support the continued improvement of non-public rural roads that enable people to access their homes and farms. Minister Ring has now allocated over €47 million to Local Authorities under the LIS since he re-introduced the Scheme in September 2017.

Significantly, Minister Ring has also announced that the 2019 LIS will include a cap of €1,200 on the amount that any individual householder or landowner will be asked to contribute towards the cost of repairs to their road.
