Re­quest to de­stroy Old Mill with­drawn

Bray People - - THE NOTEBOOK -

A PLAN­NING ap­pli­ca­tion to de­stroy the Old Mill in Greystones has been with­drawn fol­low­ing pub­lic op­po­si­tion.

The ap­pli­ca­tion was made by own­ers of the site in De­cem­ber. They wanted to re­place the struc­ture with a two-story re­tail build­ing with shops on the ground floor and of­fices on the first floor.

The site al­ready at­tained per­mis­sion for the devel­op­ment of a re­tail fa­cil­ity with the cod­i­cil that the 1837 Old Mill struc­ture must be re­tained.

Ob­jec­tion to the plans was wide­spread across Greystones with the move caus­ing pub­lic out­cry.

Deputy Simon Har­ris was among those to ob­ject to the plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tion and he wel­comed the with­drawal of same.

The su­per­mar­ket Aldi is ex­pected to open next to the Mill by sum­mer of this year, how­ever op­er­a­tors of the store have con­firmed that its devel­op­ment is not con­tin­gent on the de­mo­li­tion of the Mill build­ing.
