AEC Officers in each of the 10 Local Authorities throughout the AEC, part funded by the Department of Rural and Community Development, have surveyed available enterprise spaces in a pilot town in each county. The initiative, under the Enterprise Space Subgroup, utilises a Collector App which was developed by Mayo County Council.
The enterprise spaces include; offices, industrial warehouses and buildings, greenfield and brownfield development and strategic sites. The information collected includes details on the property type, age, size, condition, construction type, ownership/tenancy, services, fit-out standard, car parking, current, past and permitted use, and the surrounding area. This provides users of the App with information vital to decision-making, re-purposing and development of enterprise stock and to informing strategic town planning. It will be an invaluable source of information for potential investors and businesses in developing and growing their business or relocating to the Atlantic region.
* As well as identifying vacant industrial and enterprise units and Brownfield sites, the Ennis Audit also includes town centre offices and a significant number of undeveloped sites zoned for Enterprise and Light Industry in the Clare County Development Plan 2017-2023.
