Tipperary County Council is hosting today and tomorrow project meetings of the EU INTERREG EUROPE part-funded SWARE project (www.interregeurope.eu/sware; @ProjectSWARE). Pictured welcoming the representatives from the five European partners to Clonmel is Cllr. Siobhán Ambrose, Cathaoirleach of Tipperary County Council.
The SWARE project is examining how improved management and sustainable use of the unique and complex heritage (natural and built) along inland waterways could fundamentally enhance sustainable and inclusive economic growth and social cohesion by attracting new green/blue investments and generating local jobs.
As part of its involvement in the project, the Council recently appointed consultants to complete a Green & Blue Infrastructure Masterplan Roadmap for Tipperary Waterways. The study is planned to be completed by mid-2017.
