Dundalk Chamber Budget Submission

Dundalk Chamber are calling for a number of initiatives which will help the Dundalk region and the wider M1 Corridor.

They include:

  • Extending the Living City Initative to all the centres identified in the 2040 National Development Plan, of which Dundalk and Drogheda are the most prominent
  • Housing needs to be focused on the 2040 towns
  • The Shared Island Fund should be used to support the M1 Corridor (Drogheda/Dundalk/Newry) and the wider C8 (Belfast Dublin corridor)
  • Brexit supports to remain in place

Post Covid

  • Greater certainty in the tax code if working from hub or home
  • Continued targeted support for those sectors that require it
  • Allow shop local to be used by employers twice a year and to double the amount to €1,000
  • Reintroduction of redundancy rebate schemes for non company employers
  • The use of a spend voucher, as in Northern Ireland rather than tax rebate
  • BIK on Electric vehicles which cost less than €50k to be retained at 0% beyond 2022 in order to encourage use of green vehicles.

Please see attached for more information. This submission should be read with the Chambers Ireland submission.
