Council was not approached about rezoning the club
AFTER the bizarre statement likening Wicklow to North Korea Wicklow County Council issued a statement it had had no discussions with Bray Wanderers about the future of the club since January when the five year strategic plan was presented to councillors at a meeting.
‘Wicklow County Council is surprised by the statement issued on behalf of Bray Wanderers last Thursday.
‘As landlord of the Carlisle Grounds Wicklow County Council has not been approached or had any discussion with Bray Wanderers with regard to the redevelopment of the Carlisle Grounds.
‘ The Carlisle Grounds are zoned recreational and it is a function of the elected members of Wicklow County Council to amend zoning.
‘A representative of the Football Club requested to attend the monthly meeting of Bray Municipal District and did so in January of this year. Their five-year Strategic Plan was presented to councillors at that meeting.
‘ There have been no further discussions on the future of the club with Wicklow County Council.
‘Wicklow County Council would reject any suggestion that the county is anything other than an excellent place to do business and where enterprise is welcomed and encouraged.’
