Report on Greystones Marina
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.
