Wicklow People (West Edition) - - NEWS -

WICK­LOW County Coun­cil are start­ing the pub­lic con­sul­ta­tion process over playgrounds planned for Round­wood and Laragh.

The Round­wood site is lo­cated close to An Tochar GAA grounds near the en­trance to the village. The site in Laragh is sit­u­ated at the Brock­agh Re­source Cen­tre.

Cur­rently, nei­ther vil­lages has a play­ground. Deputy Pat Casey has been in­volved in both projects, with plans for a play­ground in Round­wood dat­ing back over a ten year pe­riod.

He said: ‘It will be the first play­ground for both vil­lages and the two sites are se­cure. Playgrounds are a vi­tal fa­cil­ity for our young peo­ple and pro­mote health liv­ing and ed­u­ca­tion. The fact that we are wait­ing over 10 years in the case of Round­wood shows the com­plex­ity of the process. Both sites are ideally lo­cated and the playgrounds will prove a won­der­ful ad­di­tion to both Round­wood and Laragh.’

The con­sul­ta­tion process will con­tinue for around six weeks.
