Here are some updates on planning matters in County Kilkenny for June.

This initiative focuses on the regeneration of retail and commercial
districts and encouraging people to live in the historic centres of Cork,
Dublin, Galway, Kilkenny, Limerick and Waterford. The aim of the Living
City initiative is to bring life back into the heart of the relevant cities
by offering tax relief for qualifying expenditure incurred on the
refurbishment or conversion of certain buildings where conditions are met.

initiative for Kilkenny City please see the County Council website:
