Outdoor Public Space Scheme 2021

Leitrim County Council is now inviting Expressions of Interest from Community Organisations for the Outdoor Public Space Scheme 2021.

Leitrim County Council sees this as an excellent opportunity to provide significant additionality to public property and to the overall objective of the use of public open space on a year- round basis as outlined in the scheme.  The purpose of the call for expressions of interest is for the Council to identify a worthwhile initiative led by a relevant partner organisation in collaboration with the local authority.

The Arts & Culture Recovery Taskforce was setup by the Minister of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sports & Media to examine the challenges the sector currently faces and to make recommendations on how best the sector can adapt and recover from the unprecedented damage arising from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Only one application per Local Authority can be submitted to the Department in accordance with the terms of the scheme. 

Projects received by Leitrim County Council will be assessed based on the quality of information supplied at the Expression of Interest Stage.

Successful Expressions of Interest applicants will be contacted in regard to the completion of the final Application to be submitted to the Department for consideration.


Expressions of Interest Applications should be submitted  via email to hdenning@leitrimcoco.ie by 5.00 p.m. on Thursday April 15th  2021.
