North Tipperary is to become the most competitive county in the country to establish business, build a home, or renovate derelict or protected structures, with a very aggressive proposal from the County Council to completely overhaul Development Contribution Levies set to send others into a tailspin.
The Tipperary Star understands that there will be huge reductions of up to 75% on the current scheme which means massive savings for potential investors.
In fact, somebody wishing to build a 10,000 sq m industrial unit with connection to the local authority water and sewerage schemes would be saving in excess of E380,000 in comparison to the old scheme.
Or an applicant wishing to build a domestic dwelling with a floor area of 150 sq m in a rural area, without public water available and connected to a private well, would save more than E2,000.
The proposals were brought before the elected members on Monday afternoon last and are being put on public display for members of the public to submit observations if they so wish.
