Community Involvement Scheme - Expression of Interest

The Department of Transport provides funding nationally towards this scheme to encourage local communities to get involved in the restoration and maintenance of local public roads and footpaths. Local authorities do not have the funds to carry out desirable maintenance works to all roads in their charge. The purpose of this initiative is to maximise the resources available for local road maintenance and is subject to a local community contribution of a minimum of 15% of the works costs.
Westmeath County Council invites expressions of interest from local communities who are interested in availing of this scheme.
Schemes will be assessed for inclusion in a programme of works for completion during 2023/2024, subject to the provision of funding and scheme conditions.
