Sker­ries har­bour pon­toons in­ves­ti­gated

Fingal Independent - - NEWS -

COUN­CIL con­sul­tants are look­ing into a pro­posal to pro­vide ‘pon­toon’s for plea­sure craft at Sk­er­ris Har­bour.

In re­sponse to a re­quest from Cllr Cathal Boland (NP) for an up­date on the pro­posal, which he said would ‘as­sist with ease of ac­cess to craft, par­tic­u­larly for those who have mo­bil­ity is­sues’, the coun­cil is­sued a writ­ten re­port.

That re­port states: ‘The coun­cil is­sued a ten­der for con­sul­tancy ser­vices in re­spect of Fin­gal har­bours on etenders on 29th Novem­ber 2018. As part of the brief, the con­sul­tants have been asked to review a pro­posal for the in­stal­la­tion of a float­ing pon­toon to ser­vice plea­sure leisure craft launch­ing from Sker­ries pier.

Cronin Millar, Con­sult­ing En­gi­neers were handed the task and given a brief for their in­ves­ti­ga­tions, fol­low­ing which, a de­sign for the pon­toon de­vel­op­ment could be pro­gressed, ac­cord­ing to the lo­cal au­thor­ity.

Con­sul­tants have also been tasked with com­ing up with es­ti­mated costs from the project, ac­cord­ing to the Fin­gal County Coun­cil re­port. The coun­cil will await the con­sul­tant’s re­port be­fore pro­gress­ing the is­sue.
