Swan River Greenway & Oldcourt Connectivity Scheme

Swan River Greenway Adult Survey & Youth Survey has been extended to 10th January 2022

Project Overview        

Wicklow County Council and the National Transport Authority are considering a new greenway and connectivity scheme along the Swan River in Bray’s greater Oldcourt neighbourhood (see the study area map below). 

The scheme would aim to improve connections for pedestrians and cyclists in the Oldcourt area through a new green route along the nature and heritage rich Swan River. The route would provide active transport options and green space access for local residents, while better connecting local neighbourhoods to schools, shops and amenities.

In the interest of designing a high quality scheme that is informed by local knowledge, concerns and ideas, we are launching a thorough community engagement programme in this early design stage of the project to help us consider various aspects of the greenway proposal with the local community. 

Join the Discussion!

The community engagement programme includes three elements:

·        An initial series of meetings with key local groups and organisations,

·        Surveys for adults and youth in the community, and

·        A workshop programme, with both adults and youth!

Please complete the adult and youth community survey through this link by the 10th of January 2022 which has been extended.

Please also find attached slides of the Online Workshop below which was held on Tuesday December 7th at 6:30pm on Zoom.

The In-Person Workshop was unfortunately cancelled (previously planned for Saturday December 11th at the Wolfe Tone Youth Club), due to Covid Risk.
