Save wood­en­works cam­paign launched

Septem­ber 1987

New Ross Standard - - NEWS -

A cam­paign has be­gun to in­cor­po­rate the his­toric wood­en­works into the new multi-mil­lion pound main drainage scheme on Wex­ford Quays, rather than al­low­ing them to be lost for­ever.

The move follws the public meet­ing in the Arts Cen­tre two weeks agao, when the case for and against re­ten­tion of the 80-year-old strucutre was put.

Now the or­gan­is­ers of that meet­ing are ask­ing the peo­ple of Wex­ford for their sup­port.

Peo­ple will be asked to sign a pe­ti­tion which calls for the wood­en­works to be re-built and prop­erly main­tained as a cen­tral part of the main drainage and quay de­vel­op­ment.

The next stage of the cam­paign will be to be­gin re­search to dis­cover what fea­tures peo­ple would like to see in­cluded in or omit­ted from the quays de­vel­op­ment.

The in­for­ma­tion would then be used to pre­pare an al­ter­na­tive plan and to open talks with the de­vel­oper, Wex­ford Cor­po­ra­tion.

A fur­ther meet­ing of the group will be held in The County Ho­tel next Mon­day night at 8.30 p.m.
