Harris receives written update from County Manager on Greystones Harbour
Posted June 13th, 2012 in Greystones
Fine Gael Wicklow TD, Simon Harris, has received written confirmation from County Manager Eddie Sheehy regarding a number of aspects of the Greystones Harbour development.
Deputy Harris said, “There has been great confusion over a number of aspects of the harbour development, not least regarding what constitutes the different phases of the development. I have now been informed in writing that the three phases of the project are as follows:
1. The marine works (completed)
2. The Primary Care Centre
3. The remaining landside development, which may be broken down further according to market conditions.
“The County Manager has also confirmed a bond of €5 million remains in place to ensure the works are completed satisfactorily, and no transfer of title to the land has occurred.”
“Regarding coastal erosion, the Council has acknowledged that there was an increase this year in the level of cliff retreat at the cliffs just north of the rock protection to the landfill site. This has been attributed to the sustained north-easterly storm conditions in April and slippage due to wet weather. Sispar are currently carrying out works to manage the rate of erosion.”
“I will be making the full letter available to the public, both on Facebook and on my website. I still have a number of issues regarding the Public Private Partnership model and will be pursuing these both with the Council and with the Department for the Environment, Community and Local Government.”
