Town Council Hears Latest Progress On Wicklow Harbour Development

Town Council Hears Latest Progress On Wicklow Harbour Development

#WicklowHarbour - Progress is being made in development works at Wicklow Harbour, a recent town council meeting heard.

According to the Wicklow Times on 13 May, Wicklow Town Council director of services Sean Quirke gave the lie of the land with respect to the harbour development as of the end of April.

Quirke reported that developer Sisk - which is also responsible for works currently on hold at Greystones Harbour - said planning for the first stage of construction was under way, as were arrangements for the appointment of a building partner.

Dredging and disposal works in the harbour itself are in progress, as previously reported on Afloat.ie, while the storm-damaged beach is under repair and access to the breakwater is scheduled to open shortly.

Meanwhile, there have been discussions with the resident sailing and ridge angling clubs over plans for their new clubhouse facilities.

It's being proposed that Sisk would take over the development of the new clubhouses, with a commitment to completing their new facilities in tandem with the rest of the harbour plaza scheme, while offering the clubs temporary accommodation in the interim.

In addition, a site investigation was completed for the proposed new coastguard station, a long-awaited addition to Wicklow's harbour - and the delay of which was bemoaned by Cllr Tom Fortune.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
