Incentives for the reuse of vacant buildings in town centresCATEGORY: Research CLIENT: Heritage Council of Ireland YEAR: 2018-19 LINK: www.heritagecouncil.ie - Incentives for the reuse of vacant buildings
Ireland has no coherent programme for the revitalisation of town centres.
We researched examples of national programmes that incentivise the reuse of vacant buildings for housing and sustainable communities in town centres in Scotland, Denmark and France.
The report has been widely disseminated and presented directly to Government and Ministers. Findings have been used to generate a pilot programme in Castleblayney, County Monaghan.
