Coun­cil look at buy­ing The 56

Wicklow People (Arklow) - - NEWS -

ARK­LOW Mu­nic­i­pal District is ex­plor­ing the pos­si­bil­ity of pur­chas­ing the for­mer Kitty’s bar premises at 56 Main Street.

The prop­erty has been on the mar­ket through a re­ceiver for some time and the mem­bers dis­cussed the ben­e­fits of pur­chas­ing the site at their Novem­ber meet­ing.

District en­gi­neer sais that Ark­low Mu­nic­i­pal District needs to make a de­ci­sion whether or not to aim for pur­chase, and if so, thet need to seek ap­proval from the chief ex­ec­u­tive. ‘There is very good value in it,’ he said. Cathaoir­leach Tommy An­nes­ley said that if the coun­cil pur­chased the build­ing and cleared the site, it would open up the view of the river, but that no de­ci­sion had been reached on pos­si­ble plans, should a sale go ahead.
