Cobh Municipal District has launched the ‘Cobh Municipal District Heritage Signage Scheme 2023’

Signage contributes to the vibrancy of streets creating a sense of identity and place, adding interest to a façade and defining frontages of buildings.  Poorly designed, inappropriately coloured, oversized or badly sited signs can create clutter and have a negative visual impact, while a well-designed and located sign can create richness.

Applications are invited from tenants or owners of buildings in the town of Cobh who may qualify for financial assistance under the scheme to assist in replacing plastic or neon signs with traditional/ heritage signage. Grant eligibility is for shop front signage.  There is a grant of up to 50% for individual signs. (This maybe increased depending on number of applications received).

Application forms and further information on the scheme are available from Cork County Council Offices in Carrig House, Cobh, Co. Cork.

Closing date for receipt of applications is Friday, 16th June 2023 at 16:00
