County Coun­cil told Bray es­tate is ‘in a sham­bles’

Au­gust 1983

The dis­grace­ful con­di­tion of Bal­ly­waltrim Heights in Bray was re­ferred to by both Dr John McManus and Coun­cil­lor John Byrne at last week’s meet­ing of Wicklow County Coun­cil.

Dr McManus drew a round of laugh­ter from the mem­bers when he stated that one par­tic­u­lar light on the es­tate had been light­ing con­tin­u­ously for the last three-and-a-half years while oth­ers on the es­tate had never shone any light. Holes made in the road had never been prop­erly re­in­stated, the grass was never cut and the es­tate was never swept.

In gen­eral, the ser­vices pro­vided by the coun­cil to the es­tate were de­plorable.

Cllr Byrne, in en­dors­ing the re­marks, said he had con­tacted the ESB and was told the lights were a mat­ter for the con­trac­tor.

‘The place is in a sham­bles,’ he said, adding that the grass should be cut im­me­di­ately, the light­ing at­tended to, and the place cleaned up in gen­eral. He also said he had been promised some months ago that a name­plate would be erected on the es­tate but this had not been done. Both mem­bers asked the county en­gi­neer to at­tend to the complaints made.
