Fiona Gartland in the Irish Times tells us that the revised plan to develop Greystones harbour in Co Wicklow attracted 3,650 submissions after it went on display in council offices.
The original marina development application, proposed by Wicklow County Council and its private sector partner, Sispar Consortium, included a new coastguard station, a new beach area, a public boardwalk and 6,400sq m (20,997sq ft) of commercial, mainly marine-related, units. In return for the refurbishment of the granite pier harbour, which dates from the late 1800s, and the provision of the new facilities, the consortium hoped to build 375 apartments.
Following a hearing in Bray last summer, An Bord Pleanála asked the council to resubmit plans, reducing housing and deleting apartment blocks close to Victorian housing in the area. It also instructed the council to put the plans on public display and said it would accept submissions from the public.
