Business Incentive Scheme

Main Street - Business Incentive Scheme











A Business Incentive Scheme have been introduced for the towns of Portlaoise, Portarlington, Mountmellick, Abbeyleix and Rathdowney.

The intent of the scheme is to provide a grant incentive for new businesses to locate in premises that have been vacant for a period exceeding six months and to encourage diversity of retail opportunities within a designated area.

This grant can provide the financial assistance that makes it attractive for a new business to consider setting up in areas where there are a number of vacant commercial/retail units.

Any queries in relation to the scheme should be directed to: Ms. Michelle Redmond, Laois County Council,  (057) 8664064,
