Harbour development behind schedule
GREYSTONES Harbour development is three months behind schedule members of the local town council heard last Tuesday night.
Speaking at the meeting town manager Seán Quirke said the development was already three months behind and said it would be increasingly difficult to continue the development at speed in the coming months due to the weather. ‘We are heading into a difficult period weather wise and we have to grab whatever weather and tide breaks we get. We hope to pick up progress in the summer months but the next couple of months will be difficult.’
Cllr. Derek Mitchell wondered if the council could replace the dog bins that had been in situ but which had been removed to facilitate the development saying people were still walking their dogs in the area and the bins were needed.
Mr. Quirke said he would look into the matter and Cllr. Mitchell also said that perhaps a lecture on the plans and the progress being made at the harbour would be beneficial to the public and Mr. Quirke said he felt the consultants involved in the development would be interested in facilitating this.
Cllr. Kathleen Kelle- her asked Mr. Quirke to confirm what exactly the project was and he said they were laying the harbour wall under water and the blocks in the wall were ten high and two deep.
Development works at Greystones Harbour is three months behind schedule.
