30 + YEARS OF COMMITMENT TO PILTOWN

Supporting business and encouraging start-ups

To create, promote and develop a culture of enterprise in our community , by providing support, facilities, infrastructure and the environment to encourage business development and job creation in start-up and small businesses

It all began.....

With a derelict site in the center of Piltown village…..

And now…..

THE OLD CREAMERY ENTERPRISE CENTRE

was completed at the end of February 2019.

This consists of a further 2,580 sq. ft for the creation of jobs in our locality.

This Phase of the project is now complete.

 We now have five units of various sizes which are designed to assist the development 

of business start-ups and employment growth in our area.

Facilitated Projects

 

Over the years we have facilitated other projects and worked with other organisations to the  benefit to the parish. 

We are currently working with these three projects

 

 

Pil River Park

PIL RIVER PARK

Work in progress

Our beautiful Park and Playground is a welcome addition to the village and a perfect meeting point for many families within the area and beyond. We are delighted this overdue amenity is being enjoyed by so many.

To continue with this success and the future upkeep of the Park, we hope to have family fundraising events during the year and would love if there are any parents, grandparents, or anyone who has a few spare hours and would be happy to help out with these events.

If interested, please send us a message or alternatively contact one of our committee members we would love to hear from you.

Community Support has been a major part of this project. Our big event ‘The OsKars’ is still very much in the pipeline and will go ahead as soon as it is safe for us all to come together.

A positive sign of our community moving forward again.

Hub

TOWN AND VILLAGE RENEWAL COWORKING HUB

We are currently researching a flexible, professional working environment for a Coworking centre in Piltown.  The Hub would provide a flexible, professional working environment for up to 20 people, with flexible desks, designated desks, and private offices. Serviced  with high speed broadband, postal address and 24/7 access it will provide  an ideal location for start-ups or established businesses looking for an office space in the South-East.

It will  also offer modern, bright meeting rooms with   stunning views and amenities.  If you would like to register your interest in the project you can do so by completing  our contact  form.

Better Broadband

Super-fast full-fibre broadband.

B4OC is a voluntary group who have been working hard to design and build a community-owned full-fibre-to-the-home broadband network for Piltown and Fiddown.

Piltown is now connected to the national fibre-optic grid. This will provide the village with its own gigabit connection where a bespoke Fibre-to-the-Home (FTTH) network can be built.

Currently the first customers in phase 1 (Ardclone) are being connected.

 Once the network has been validated and commissioned the first customers should be experiencing next generation broadband.  Then the fibre will be rolled out to Phase 2 (Creamery Road) and Phase 3 (Tybroughney).

The success of this project so far has been achieved with help and support of local people but there is much more work ahead before the network is complete.

 Please get in touch if you think you can help in any way.
