Moate Town Centre First Masterplan


Moate Town Centre First (TCF) Plan will be a non-statutory community level plan produced by the local Town Team, drawn from local community and business representatives, with the support of Westmeath County Council. It will identify challenges, actions and integrated responses across a number of themes (such as business/commercial; community/cultural; housing; built environment; heritage). TCF plans will be action and project-orientated in nature and will assist Moate in accessing funding and investment available for town regeneration across a number of government departments and agencies.

The Town Team is intended to be inclusive and represent as many local voices as possible to guide the future of YOUR town as an attractive place to live, work, visit and invest in.
