Residents living close to Bray garda station had no idea that the erection of a controversial communications mast in the station's grounds had been appealed to An Bórd Pleanála.
This was according to Cllr. Pat Vance who told members at last Tuesday's special housing and planning meeting that he had been contacted by numerous residents who wanted to know if the mast required planning permission.
He said he was unsure if the mast was an exempted development but said he thought that a report on the matter would have been circulated to the members.
Town Manager Des O'Brien said that that mast had been deemed an exempted development. The matter was now being looked at by An Bórd Pleanála, who had invited submissions from members of the public.
In response, Cllr. Vance said a number of residents in the area were unaware of the situation.
