GREYSTONES HARBOUR GREAT PROGRESS AT JULY 2010

DISAPPOINTMENT AT LACK OF INTEREST BY NATIONAL MEDIA AT GREAT ENGINEERING JOB.

After a visit to the site of the €300 million Harbour and North Beach Development Fine Gael Councillor George Jones warmly welcomed the progress to date.
Cllr Jones said “the marine works are very close to completion with an end date of September in sight.
When you are on site and see that all the existing residential houses in the harbour area will have very clear views of a much improved Harbour and a great views of Bray Head its heard to understand the protests about this development. The Boardwalk which will continue the Trafalgar Road will open up a complete new vista of the area.

Cllr Jones said he hoped his colleagues on Wicklow County Council will approve the building of the new Primary Care Centre at their meeting on September 6th. This will bring to Greystones a new concept to health care in the area.

The quality of the current harbour development is to be warmly welcomed and the many comments of a positive nature about the present development is great said Cllr Jones.
We were told some years ago that over 6000 objections were lodged about this project in recent times regarding the Primary Care Centre proposal 6 submissions were received I hope this is evidence that at last this major project is welcome in Greystones said Jones.

The one regret I have said Cllr Jones is that the national media have given very little coverage to the building of this harbour which I feel is akin to the railway been brought through the Bray Greystones channel. The engineering works on this €300m scheme should be recorded as “a scheme in progress ” and alot more coverage should be given concluded Cllr Jones.
