The Local Improvement Scheme (LIS) is funded by my Department and administered through the Local Authorities. The number and location of road projects to benefit from improvement works is a matter for the relevant Local Authority.
The following table outlines the number of LIS road projects approved by the Local Authorities, by county, in 2018 and 2019.
My Department does not hold records of projects that have not been approved at Local Authority level, and any queries or appeals in respect of such projects are a matter for the relevant Local Authority.
