Local Funding for Local Projects

Since 2009, Indaver has proudly invested much of its earnings into local community groups, sports clubs and schools. This is a pattern we plan to replicate within Ringaskiddy, supporting the surrounding area as best we can.

Community Benefit Fund

Indaver prides itself on ‘giving back’ to the communities in which our plants operate, contributing to local projects whilst actively working to protect nearby wildlife. To date, the Meath fund has amounted to over €2,000,000 which has been invested in a range of important projects and community initiatives, such as:

  • financing the construction of a school building
  • the construction and lighting of a new safe footpath
  • supporting local cultural, community, arts and sports groups/clubs.

In order ensure the local community remains satisfied with Indaver’s development, the Indaver Community Liaison Committee (consisting of two representatives from the local residents’ association, two local area councillors, two members of Indaver and two members of the local authority), will work to regulate the company’s continued contributions.

The Resource Recovery Centre will be designed to complement the surrounding area, encouraging recycling efforts and creating hundreds of invaluable jobs for members of the local community, in addition to offering educational visits to nearby schools. We are consistent in our approach to all developments and continue to prioritise those who live in the vicinity of our plants.

Local amenity enhancement

In addition to the Community Benefit Fund, we have committed to an investment of €1,000,000 for infrastructure works. These include:

  • the construction of an amenity walkway to provide enhanced public access to Gobby Beach and the Martello Tower
  • an upgrade to the local road to the prevent occasional flooding that occurs from time to time
  • improve the surface water drainage network from the western end of the site to the eastern end of Gobby Beach car park
  • raising a 185-metre length of the road by a maximum height of up to one metre between Gobby Beach car park and the entrance to the National Maritime College (NMCI)

Indaver welcomes proposals from members of the local community who may be seeking funding for an upcoming project. We are open to new ideas supporting a rich variety of ongoing community projects.
