Community Facilities

Given the dilapidation and siltation of the harbour, access to the sea for maritime clubs in Greystones has become increasingly difficult. The existing situation where coastal rescue facilities are not located at the harbour is less than satisfactory and great credit is due to the volunteers who operate the service in the current conditions.

The PPP project requires bidders to provide facilities for the following:

Cliff Walk

The Bray to Greystones Cliff Walk is one of the most spectacular coastal walks in Ireland but unfortunately it has been the subject of severe coastal erosion over the years. This is particularly evident at the southern (Greystones) end of the walk where erosion of the boulder clay cliffs has resulted in the walk becoming dangerous in parts.

Wicklow County Council has recently purchased in excess of 2 acres of land and relocated and resurfaced a section of the path in order to make it accessible to the many walkers who use it on a regular basis.

Development Plan

The Variation to Part 3 of the County Development Plan containing the Greystones/Delgany and Rathdrum plans, made in November 2003, remains in force pending the preparation of Local Area Plans for these towns. The variation incorporated a revised Greystones Harbour and North Beach Action Plan.

Compulsory Purchase Order

A Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO) has been prepared in order to acquire the lands necessary to give effect to the objectives of the County Development Plan and in particular the Greystones Harbour and North Beach Action Plan. The CPO was served on owners and occupiers of lands required to secure these objectives including the Minister for Finance in respect of lands below the High Water Mark.

Environmental Impact Statement

Since the appointment of Sispar as preferred bidder for the Greystones Harbour and North Beach PPP project, extensive design development work has been carried out. An Environmental Impact Assessment of the proposed development has been completed and an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) prepared. Wicklow County Council now proposes to seek the approval of An Bord Pleanala for the development.
