The Urban Development Grant scheme, which provides support to developers to help bring vacant, derelict or underused land and buildings back into use, has been reopened by Social Development Minister Lord Morrow. morrowThe Urban Development Grants (UDG) are discretionary grants provided to help urban areas in Northern Ireland. A range of physical development projects may attract UDG including: inner/middle city housing, retail, commercial and light industrial. Applications are being invited from developers from 4th April 2016 and must be received by the Department by 13th May 2016. Minister Morrow said, “I am delighted to announce that, despite challenging budgets, I can reopen the Urban Development Grant scheme. “My Department is particularly keen to see applications from developers with projects that enhance or complement Government’s own plans to regenerate areas, create jobs, attract investment and improve the environment.

In the past this scheme has supported regeneration in such areas throughout Northern Ireland. He added, “I look forward to further environmental, social and economic improvements being delivered to our communities as a result of this Grant scheme.” More information, including the application form and notes, can be found on the DSD website by clicking HERE.
