Bray Lak­ers’ site hits ac­cess hitch

Bray People - - NEWS -

PLANS TO de­velop a site for the new Bray Lak­ers fa­cil­ity have come to a stand­still due to prob­lems with ac­cess.

The site do­nated to the spe­cial needs club by Wick­low County Coun­cil is lo­cated just off the Boghall Road. Ac­cess through St. Fer­gal's church has proved im­pos­si­ble, and ac­cess through the car park of Bal­ly­waltrim Com­mu­nity Cen­tre has been re­fused.

‘On Fri­day I rang the chair­man of the com­mu­nity cen­tre and was told they de­clined to al­low us go in across the carpark,' said Pa­trick O'Rourke of Bray Lak­ers.

He said that board mem­bers had in­di­cated ear­lier that it would be pos­si­ble. ‘ We don't know what changed,' he said.

Mr. O'Rourke said that the only re­main­ing route is through Schools Road, which he said is more dif­fi­cult than oth­ers.

The site is on a derelict bas­ket­ball court and will not af­fect the ex­ist­ing play­ground.

‘It's up to the coun­cil now. We have done ev­ery­thing we can and sought ac­cess from those two bod­ies. It's al­ready over nine months since we were granted that site. It's tak­ing a long time.'
