Wicklow County Council approved the Greystones, Kilcoole and Delgany Development Plan at its Monday meeting.
Part of the County Managers recommendations was to rezone Stylebawn House, a Protected Structure, in the centre of Delgany for extra housing and some shops. This was rejected by the Councillors and it has reverted to its previous low density zoning.
Also Councillors voted to remove any possibility of shopping development on the large IDA site. ‘I was very against shops there as I felt it would result in vacant shops in the centre of the town, something that has damaged so many other main streets. Greystones is fortunate that the shops in the centre are full and I want to keep it that way’.
