£2m com­plex plans are shot down

July 1997

Bray People - - NEWS -

A PRO­POSAL for a multi-mil­lion pound hol­i­day com­plex in the heart of Wick­low town has been re­jected by the lo­cal Ur­ban Dis­trict Coun­cil.

The cen­tre, which was to be lo­cated at the town’s North Quay, was to cost over £2 mil­lion to build.

The plan, which in­cluded 10 hol­i­day apart­ments, self-cater­ing ac­com­mo­da­tion and a bar and restau­rant, was con­sid­ered one of the most am­bi­tious for years.

How­ever lo­cal coun­cil­lors shot the plan down say­ing it con­flicted with the op­er­a­tion and ex­pan­sion of Wick­low Port.

Cllr Lance O’Brien said the Coun­cil had unan­i­mously re­jected the pro­posal.

‘It was just not fea­si­ble and suit­able for the area. Wick­low Port is ex­pand­ing at a rapid rate and we feel this de­vel­op­ment would con­flict with this type of in­creased ex­pan­sion,’ said Cllr O’Brien.
