Bray People - - NEWS -

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.’
