Bray People - - NEWS -

GREY­STONES Mu­nic­i­pal Dis­trict mem­bers are to ask de­vel­op­ers in to a meet­ing to show them more vis­ual plans for fu­ture de­vel­op­ments at the ma­rina. ‘Con­sid­er­ing the débâ­cle of Kil­coole, it’s vi­tal we see what it looks like,’ said Cllr Grainne McLough­lin at last Tues­day’s monthly meet­ing. ‘We have to scream and shout and in­sist we want in­put as coun­cil­lors.’ Mem­bers had learned in a re­port that ‘Block D’ will com­mence in quar­ter two of 2019, sub­ject to Part 8 process. The board­walk will be com­pleted and opened on a se­quen­tial ba­sis in line with the de­liv­ery of the apart­ment blocks.

Ninety-seven houses are com­plete, with blocks HIJ and EFG un­der way. The pub­lic park will be com­menced in con­junc­tion with Ter­race 12, with ground works to com­mence in Novem­ber. Cllr Derek Mitchell said that quar­ter two 2019 is quite soon. ‘Part 8 takes time. We want to see more of the de­sign we would nor­mally see. It’s the most im­por­tant block in the place.’

Cllr Jen­nifer Whit­more sug­gested invit­ing them to a meet­ing and all agreed. Cllr Tom For­tune asked about the build­ing in the ma­rina, which was to be a har­bour master of­fice and res­tau­rant. Cllr Derek Mitchell said that the of­fice and other fa­cil­i­ties are open. He said that there had been a plan­ning en­force­ment case for the other floor, pos­si­bly to do with bal­conies and fire es­capes. ‘It’s the most un­usual build­ing I’ve seen,’ said Cllr For­tune.

Cllr Mitchell said that they should find out at the next meet­ing what was hap­pen­ing with that build­ing.
