NEW GRANT INCENTIVE SCHEME FOR WEXFORD TOWN
A new grant incentive scheme is being introduced in Wexford Town in the hope of bringing more jobs to the area.
The Economic Development Office at Wexford County Council has identified a number of vacant offices in the town which they hope will be filled as a result of the new scheme.
Businesses who decide to rent the proporties will be given a significant rates rebate over a 3 year period.
A similar scheme is in place in Templeshannon in Enniscorthy.
Padraig O’Gorman is the economic development officer.
He says they’re trying to attract sectors to the town which don’t have a strong presence in the area.
