#NewMarina? Wexford County Council’s Chief Executive, Tom Enright has revealed ambitious plans for a €35 million development that may include a new marina along the town’s iconic Trinity Wharf site.
According to the Wexford People, the county council, which recently bought the site from NAMA for €800,000, a 10th of its value a decade ago, is planning to establish a high-quality business park there, creating at least 1,000 new jobs. Asides the possibility of a marina the development facilities are for a 'modest' hotel, restaurants, cafes, pubs, residential units and a public park.
The project will be a 'less dense' and more jobs friendly version of the development than the Celtic Tiger project that years ago had been planned for the 10-acre brownfield site by business magnate Derry McPhilips, but which never came to fruition.
