The funding is being awarded as part of the Urban Regeneration and Development Fund (URDF).

The initial provisional URDF allocation for Tallaght Town Centre Project was €14.8m, based on an estimated project budget of €19.8m in 2019.

The revised provisional allocation which Minister O’Brien has approved is €31,894,325 an increase of €17,044,325 based on more accurate and up-to-date project costings of €45,878,372.

The local authority will make a 25 per cent contribution to the balance of the costs, which will bring the total spend on the project to €45m.

Work on the remainder of the Tallaght Town Centre Project is due to commence in the third quarter of 2021.
