Minister Coveney: €4.5 Million for Harbors Development

The Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Simon Coveney, has announced details of a €4.5 million package to assist in the development and repair of 90 Local Authority owned harbors and slipways.

The package provides funding for the repair of piers damaged by recent storms, in addition to supporting the ongoing development and enhancement of harbor facilities including some marine leisure developments.

“This is a significant investment in the repair and development of fishery and aquaculture linked marine infrastructures owned by the Local Authorities,” Coveney said.

“The diverse range of projects approved for funding under the program are geographically spread across 11 Local Authorities which will not only create much needed local employment over the timespan of the projects, but equally will further enhance the amenities provided to the wider Marine community in these coastal areas.”

The Local Authority program forms part of the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marines’ 2016 Fishery harbor and Coastal Infrastructure Development Program, whereby the Department co-funds up to 75% the total cost of approved projects with the Local Authority providing the balance.
