Bal­ly­more will be ‘un­der sus­pi­cion’ in fu­ture

Bray People - - Council Report -

‘I HATE to tell you I told you so’ was Coun­cil­lor John McManus’s re­sponse to what Cathaoir­leach Ciarán O’Brien called ‘a long saga that is the Floren­tine Cen­tre’.

At the end of July, Bal­ly­more De­vel­op­ments de­cided not to go ahead with the full plans for the Floren­tine Cen­tre.

‘I hope in the fu­ture that there won’t be any in­di­ca­tion of do­ing work with Bal­ly­more,’ said Cllr McManus. ‘The only rea­son we have any res­o­lu­tion to this is be­cause the Town Coun­cil mem­bers pushed ahead to en­sure that some­thing be done.’

Cllr McManus went on to say that no real progress was made and with the plans that are go­ing ahead Bal­ly­more are sim­ply un­do­ing what they did five years ago. Coun­cil­lor Pat Vance agreed that if any fu­ture dis­cus­sions were to be held with Bal­ly­more in re­gards to the fu­ture plan­ning of the site, the mem­bers should re­main very sus­pi­cious of them.

‘I am ap­palled by it all and that af­ter so many years we are left with so lit­tle,’ he said.
