Council labels Dargle Rd sites too costly
THE COUNCIL will not be buying two sites on the Dargle Road for housing projects, because they are too expensive, it emerged at last week’s meeting of Bray Town Council.
Proposals were submitted to the Department of Environment with an outline of what could be built on the sites as well as costings.
While the plans were rejected, officials said that the plots could well come back on the market at a reduced price, in which case they could be considered again.
‘We should be actively trying to buy these at a price the Department will allow,’ said Cllr. John McManus.
The Council heard that no money, other than a valuation of the land, had been spent to date on the proposed developments.
‘We had intended to purchase the sites had the project appraisal been approved,’ said housing officer Triona Irving to the members.
