‘My Carlow’ Regeneration plan is great news for the town.

4th May, 2018

‘My Carlow’, a major new development plan designed to regenerate and revitalise Carlow Town Centre will breathe new life into the town, a Fine Gael TD has said.

Pat Deering, Fine Gael TD for Carlow Kilkenny said: “This regeneration plan is great news for Carlow. Planning is essential for any big town and the ‘My Carlow’ plan will map the development of Carlow for many years to come.

“Carlow has a lot going for it already, but this plan will see it develop to rival other urban areas in the region. This will be important as we seek to attract jobs and investment to Carlow.

“I am especially delighted as I assisted in securing the initial funding of €150,000 for the plan in 2016.

“Then Minister for Planning and Local Government, Simon Coveney, met with both Carlow County Council representatives and Carlow Chamber of Commerce who outlined their concerns for Carlow town centre at the time.

“€150,000 was made available to Carlow County Council in conjunction with Carlow Chamber to develop this plan. This is the beginning of a very exciting project for Carlow town centre,” the Fine Gael TD said.
