Minister launches national plan for town centre renewal in Sligo

Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Mary Mitchel-O’Connor, is in Sligo today launching the Framework for Town Centre Renewal.

The framework is being implemented in towns outside of Dublin that have not yet had significant economic recovery.

It has three stages to make this happen; the first step is understanding your town, the second establishing a Town Team or Town Centre Management Partnership and the thrid step is to prepare a town centre plan.

Speaking in City Hall in Sligo, Minister Mitchell-O’Connor was asked by Ocean FM’s Harry Keaney why she decided to launch the national plan here in Sligo.
