The harbour developer explained the phasing of his moves to complete it. A lot of work is going on to complete the 5 clubs for handover this year. ‘I am delighted that the clubs are getting these facilities, which are costing €3.5m, it is a tremendous boost to the town’s sports facilities. No other town has produced such great community facilities’. Most of the Public Square will be complete next June and the Public Park in 2019 with all work complete in 2020, the public aspects costing €15m including the clubs. These later dates are dependent on home sales the first of which are likely to be occupied in Autumn next year.
The developer, Bridgedale JV, expects there to be 50 permanent jobs and 3/400 during construction.
