Bray Town centre to get major facelift

Bray town centre looks set to get a major facelift after a number of exciting initiatives aimed at revitalising the commerical heart of the town were announced last week.

The two initiatives which will most dramatically affect the appearance of the town centre include a grant scheme of €230,000 for the refurbishment of shopfronts, along with a Paint the Town' scheme which will see upper building facades being painted at no cost to retailers.

These ambitious plans were unveiled to retailers and business owners last Wednesday at a special meeting organised by the Bray Town Centre Rejuvenation Committee, a public private partnership between Bray Town Council, Bray Chamber of Commerce and retailers' groups.

The committee hopes that the plan, which also includes proposals to improve Bray's chronic parking problems and tackle littering, will rejuvenate, revitalise and revive' the main commercial areas of the town.

Independent businesses who are interested in the scheme can apply for shopfront grants until Friday August 10, but are being urged to get their applications in immediately.
