March 2006 Area Committee meeting Question: Councillor M. Baker:
"To ask the Manager if funding could be secured under heritage grants or other grants for the provision of flood lighting on St John the Baptist Church, Temple Road, Blackrock?"
There are no grants available under the Heritage Budget for lighting of buildings. The grants for the Conservation of a Protected Structure only cover (a) works necessary to secure the stability of a structure or part of a structure, (b) works necessary to make a structure weather-proof or damp-proof, (c) works necessary to conserve or repair external walls or internal features, (d) works consisting of temporary repairs, where it is necessary to protect a structure from immediate risks. Therefore the lighting of the structure would not be covered
