Mayor welcomes re-introduction of the Community Involvement Scheme for Local Roads

The Mayor of Clonmel/Cahir Borough District, Cllr. Martin Lonergan has welcomed Tipperary County Councils decision to reintroduce the Community Involvement Scheme (CIS) for 2015.

Commenting on the news, Cllr. Lonergan said, “Tipperary County Council invites applications for the Community Involvement Scheme from groups of local residents.  The scheme, as in previous years will apply to local public roads of the following types – low traffic volume, minor and cul-de-sac.

The Council propose to allocate grants under the above Scheme on condition that residents pay a financial contribution of 15%.

Given the success of the scheme in 2014, particularly in the Clonmel and Cahir Areas, it affords the Local Authority to make available moneys go further in cooperation with local involvement.


It will continue to permit Local Community participation in the repair of local minor roads, repairs which would only be considered towards the end of a County Council’s roads programme, after more heavily trafficked routes had been dealt with. This scheme is and will continue to allow for the improvement of minor roads that ordinarily wouldn’t be undertaken, and will further enhance our rural and minor roads. Further information on this years scheme and how to apply is available from me or the County Council directly. The closing date for receipt of forms will be 2nd April 2015 at 12 noon and ALL FORMS must be returned to the Roads Department, Civic Offices, Nenagh, Co. Tipperary,” Mayor Lonergan concluded.

Further details and application forms are available from Roads Section, Tipperary County  Council, Civic Offices, Limerick Road, Nenagh.  Telephone 0761 06 5000 or from the Council’s website ‘’.

It is important to note that applicants on the list from previous years Community Assisted Roads Schemes / Community Involvement Scheme will need to re-apply under the new revised Scheme.
