The new Extension to the ALDI Store here at LEDP Roxboro has opened. With queues forming from 8.15am the store’s new layout did not diappoint. The new look store offers a wider range of goods laid out in a more spacious configuration. The overwhelming response from early shoppers was that the new look store was a significant improvement.
LEDP are very pleased to have their Case Study published as the sole Irish Project examined as part of the 50 Urban Cases of Good Practice in the EU. The Commission has published a study on European Regional Development Fund projects improving the standards of living and working in Europe’s cities. ‘Urban development in the EU’ presents 50 projects which received ERDF investment and offers an information package for selected cities, with detailed information on projects and results there. The study gathers a range of good urban practice, and is a ‘state of play’ in how the cities have put local urban policies into action with ERDF investment from 2007-13. The cities highlighted reveal interesting ideas, solutions and cooperation or collaboration methods serving as inspiration for other urban areas and managing authorities.

LEDP Limerick Cleantech
LEDP in association with our partners LIT, EI, Limerick Local Authorities, the FDI and SME Sectors and UL are pleased to announce the establishment of The Limerick Cleantech Initiative At LEDP.
We are pleased that Limerick Cleantech Initiative is seen as a viable Green Cluster in the Government Policy Statement on Growth and Employment in the Green Economy entitled Delivering Our Green Potential (click to access)
The vision around this project is to combine Cleantech Enterprise/ Incubation space, Installer Training and Research / Data Centre activities on the LEDP site.
The primary aim of the centre is to support the creation of sustainable high level jobs in the region through Mentoring Venture Capital Support etc. In pursuance of this objective, the support of the two local Third level Institutions, UL and LIT, has been pledged.
Their expertise in running existing centre’s on their campuses will help support the development of the concept. A conservative estimate is that over 200 participants could be put through the centre over a five year period and by applying normal success and expansion levels this could lead to the creation of 600 jobs in allied businesses
The key partners are LEDP, Enterprise Ireland, LIT, UL and the Local Authority. We are also seeking to create an FDI/SME support network to advise and provide commercial or other market opportunities to the centre.
