Pride of Place
Meath County Council Initiatives
“The aim of Pride of Place is to work in partnership with communities, to encourage best practice, innovation and leadership in providing vibrant sustainable communities that improve the quality of life for all.”
Pride of Place Initiatives
Pride of Place initiatives have been developed by Meath County Council with the specific aim of assisting all members of the community who wish to make their places: their towns, villages, streets, roadsides and homes – a more enjoyable place to be.
These initiatives highlight the important link between our surroundings and our quality of life. It is no coincidence that people travel the length and breadth of the country, and indeed the world, visiting beauty spots – beautiful scenery lifts our spirits and our hearts. Meath County Council wants to assist all of the interested individuals and groups in bringing this principal home – and making Meath really ‘Magic’!
- Participants are encouraged and rewarded for brightening up their communities and for enhancing the natural beauty of the surroundings in which we live through planting, hanging baskets, pots shrubs, trees, street furniture and any other appropriate measure in the Royal Bloom and Meath Rural Heritage competitions.
- There is the Vacant Premises Enhancement Projects to enhance/transform particular sites that have been overlooked in the past.
- Housing Estates Competition - housing estates in all over the county will compete with each other.
Meath County Council is committed to backing up all of these schemes, in grant and prize fund form. It is also increasing its enforcement of litter and waste management legislation, with additional input from outdoor staff and with on-going support from the Project Officer and the Environmental Awareness Officer (details below).
We hope you enjoy reading about these schemes and hope you will identify one or more which will be of interest to you. Meath County Council looks forward to working closely with you towards our common goal.
