Ap­pli­ca­tion for new pub li­cence

Bray People - - NEWS - By MARY FOG­A­RTY

A PUB li­cence ap­pli­ca­tion for Bar­racuda Restau­rant will re­turn to Wick­low Dis­trict Court in the first week of Fe­bru­ary.

A num­ber of pub­li­cans in the Bray area are ob­ject­ing to the ap­pli­ca­tion. They in­clude John Dug­gan of The Martello who ex­plained that the ob­jec­tion is based on the size of the de­vel­op­ment.

Mr Dug­gan said that the ap­pli­ca­tion for the li­cence is for the en­tire build­ing.

The ap­pli­ca­tion came be­fore the court last week, how­ever due to the ob­jec­tions there was not time for the judge to hear the mat­ter so it was ad­journed to Fe­bru­ary 3. The Bar­racuda build­ing is lo­cated on the seafront. It in­cludes the ex­ist­ing restau­rant, a ‘pub’ type area down­stairs which was pre­vi­ously the Fin­bees cof­fee house premises, and some other spa­ces.

The own­ers of the build­ing were granted per­mis­sion in 2013 for a change of use to gas­tro pub at that par­tic­u­lar area of the build­ing.

The li­cens­ing pro­ce­dure re­quires ap­pli­cants to ap­ply for the en­tire build­ing rather than a por­tion of same.

They also sub­se­quently car­ried out else­where in the build­ing to ren­o­vate in or­der to move Fin­bees cof­fee house to the other side of the build­ing.

The de­vel­op­ment also in­cludes an ice cream par­lour to­wards the prom­e­nade side of Bar­racuda.

The aquar­ium Sea Life is also in­cluded in the Bar­racuda build­ing on the seafront in Bray.
