Sup­port for re­jec­tion of Tesco plans

Bray People - - Council Report -

THERE WAS full sup­port by Town Coun­cil­lors last week for the re­jec­tion of the de­vel­op­ment at the Tesco site, while all were in favour for the Pizarro de­vel­op­ment to go ahead as soon as pos­si­ble.

A plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tion by Tesco to de­mol­ish the site on the Ve­vay Road and to re­build the store that cur­rently stands at 35,000 square feet to 135,000 square feet was re­jected by Bray Town Coun­cil.

‘I’m de­lighted that it was re­jected be­cause Tesco didn’t com­mu­ni­cate with any­one about it, leav­ing the res­i­dents of the area no choice but to re­ject it,’ said Coun­cil­lor Collins.

Coun­cil­lor Pat Vance re­it­er­ated Cllr Collins’ com­ment adding that he hopes Tesco will

Bríd come back with a more re­al­is­tic pro­posal.

Cllr Vance gave his full sup­port to the Pizarro De­vel­op­ment.

‘ It is a won­der­ful de­vel­op­ment that will stop busi­ness be­ing drained out of the town. It will in­clude a cin­ema and much needed fa­cil­i­ties such as two schools which this town needs,’ said Cllr Vance.
