Ramelton Action Plan - July 2020


Ramelton Action Plan - A Study of Heritage Led Actions for Renewal and Regeneration was launched on the 3rd July 2020. The Plan was funded by the Department of Rural and Community Development under the Town and Village Renewal Scheme and is the result of collaboration with the local community, Donegal County Council and Dedalus Architecture.


The Action Plan provides a number of heritage led actions that have been developed in consultation with the local community and whichare intended to support the renewal and regeneration of Ramelton. Ramelton is one of the best preserved historic towns in the northwest of Ireland; unique both in terms of the survival and rarity of its individual 18th and 19th century houses and vernacular industrial buildings and the varied townscape that is created by these structures within their landscape setting.


The Plan will assist and support a wide range of public and private stakeholders such as landowners, business owners, local community groups, statutory bodies and public authorities in providing heritage led guidance and dedicated actions for the regeneration, repair and future development of the town in a sustainable manner. The document defines a vision for the town’s future and sets out a range of ideas, actions and projects that are designed to fulfil its potential as an incredibly valuable and unique heritage asset and are fundamental to the town’s future.
