The overall vision is to re-imagine and regenerate the strategically located waterfront area of Bray; to increase economic activity, amenity, and connectivity to public transport, the sea-front and esplanade. The aim is to deliver a vibrant public amenity that will be of great benefit to residents and visitors alike. Works envisaged include:

  • Amenity and Public Realm – an extension of amenity areas, improvement of the streetscape, parking, cycle provision and sporting facilities
  • Promenade Board Walk - linking the promenade with the harbour
  • Cycle Bridge - to relieve a pinch point at the Dargle Bridge crossing
  • Relocation of boat storage to the north of the harbour
