Vote for Greystones in ‘Best Places’ sur­vey

Bray People - - NEWS -

Greystones has made the short­list in a pres­ti­gious com­pe­ti­tion to find Ire­land’s ‘Best Places’.

Now the town needs the pub­lic to vote for Greystones in the com­pe­ti­tion or­gan­ised by the Royal Town Plan­ning In­sti­tute Ire­land (RTPI).

Greystones is up against towns and at­trac­tions such as Cobh in Cork; Din­gle in Kerry; Kilkenny City; Abbeyleix in Laois and the Western Green­way in Mayo. The 10 were whit­tled down by judges from an orig­i­nal panel of 95. The aim of the com­pe­ti­tion is to cel­e­brate some of the most at­trac­tive and in­spir­ing places and the role plan­ners have played in help­ing to pro­tect or shape them for com­mu­ni­ties across Ire­land. A spokesper­son for Greystones Mu­nic­i­pal Dis­trict said: ‘This nom­i­na­tion comes hot on the heels of the re­cent en­dorse­ment of Greystones in the na­tional press. From its beau­ti­ful coastal lo­ca­tion and ma­rina to its won­der­ful sport and leisure fa­cil­i­ties, not to men­tion its gourmet res­tau­rants, great schools and trans­port links, what’s not to love about Greystones?’

There are three ways to cast a vote. Ei­ther go to rtpi. org.uk, email to con­tact@rt­pi­ire­land.org or tweet your vote us­ing the hash­tag RTPIre­land­sBestPlaces, all by Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 12.

‘Orig­i­nally a small fish­ing vil­lage, Greystones has grown sig­nif­i­cantly with the rede­vel­op­ment of its har­bour but has kept its vil­lage at­mos­phere. Hous­ing, road net­works and fa­cil­i­ties have been im­proved to cater for the growth,’ reads the en­try.
