Monaghan County Council Local Improvement Scheme

Monaghan County Council invites applications for future rounds of funding under the Local Improvement Scheme (LIS).

The LIS is a scheme to support the improvement of non-public rural roads which provide access to homes and farms, as well as amenities such as lakes and rivers.  Up to 90% of the funding is provided by the County Council, with the balance coming from local residents.

To qualify, the road must provide access to parcels of land, of which at least two are owned or occupied by different persons engaged in separate agricultural activities or must provide access for harvesting purposes (including turf) for two or more persons.  There must be a minimum of one occupied dwelling on the road.  These and other detailed terms and conditions and an application form are available on Monaghan County Council’s website or by contacting:

New applicants will be placed on a waiting list and funded as resources allow.  Due to the popularity of the scheme, demand is expected to be heavy.  Funding will be subject to the current waiting list being cleared, and funding being made available to Monaghan Co. Council under the national scheme.  Accordingly, applicants should note that it may take some years before all applications made under this call are funded. 

The closing date for applications is Monday 31st December 2018 at 5pm.  Thereafter, the scheme will remain closed until further notice – i.e. there will be no ‘rolling’ acceptance of applications after the closing date.
