A scheme for a 50% grant in lieu of rates for three years for the incentivisation of occupation of vacant retail units has been introduced by Cork City Council following a number of representations by elected members.
The scheme is focussed on the Old Historic Spine of the city including Barrack St, North Main St and Shandon Street. The scheme is restricted to certain sectors. The sectors eligible for the scheme can be found in Appendix 2 of the application form.
