Coun­cil la­bels Dar­gle Rd sites too costly

Bray People - - News -

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.
