‘No re­sponse’ from own­ers of La Touche

‘PLEASE RE­MOVE THIS UGLY SITE FROM OUR TOWN’

Bray People - - COUNCIL REPORT - ES­THER HAY­DEN

THE LA Touche Ho­tel is a dan­ger­ous site and needs to be cleaned up im­me­di­ately ac­cord­ing to Cllr. Ge­orge Jones.

Speak­ing at last week's meet­ing of Grey­stones Town Coun­cil Cllr. Jones said 'I re­ally think we need to do some­thing about the La Touche Ho­tel and we need to ad­dress se­cu­rity is­sues at the site. We have to step up se­cu­rity and we must be proac­tive to try and re­move this ugly site from our town.'

He was sup­ported by Cllr. Derek Mitchell who said 'I want to see this on the derelict site reg­is­ter' point­ing out the coun­cil could re­ceive 3 per cent of the value of the site a year if it was on the reg­is­ter and re­mained derelict. He said some­one from the plan­ning depart­ment should at­tend next month's meet­ing of the town coun­cil to dis­cuss the mat­ter.

Cllr. Tom For­tune won­dered if the ho­tel were de­mol­ished would it be suit­able for a shel­tered vil­lage. Town clerk Myra Porter said she had writ­ten to the liq­uida­tor acting on be­half of AIB and also to the se­cu­rity com­pany em­ployed say­ing 'we were adamant that the build­ing must be made se­cure and also asked what the fu­ture in­ten­tions of the own­ers were.'

How­ever she said there had been no re­sponse as of yet.

The once ma­jes­tic La Touche Ho­tel is now an eye­sore and a very dan­ger­ous de­te­ri­o­rat­ing site.
