Commercial Fishermen & Greystones Harbour: Issues

Posted by | Greystones, Harbour | No Comments

Considerable commercial vehicle traffic including oil tankers on a 24 hour basis in a dense residential area with narrow footpaths designed as a residential cul de sac. Fishing HGVs are driving dangerously (including turning) where many, including children, are hauling dingies & canoes across a path & launching. 2 children were almost run down in June. The North pier is too narrow, 7m, to allow separation of pedestrians and commercial vehicles. Any items left on the pier will be a serious trip hazard given the big distance to fall. The…

Mitchell objects to harbour house design changes.

Posted by | Community Facilities, Greystones, Harbour | No Comments

The developer of the harbour houses has proposed changes which mean they now propose to overlook Mt. Haven behind the railway line. I have objected as Mount Haven Residents were previously assured they would not be overlooked. I expect the harbour houses will be altered. I have also asked that provision would be made for occasional camping, by laying down service pipes, for special authorised marine events such as Rowing & Sailing Regattas and Sea Scouts events.

Greystones Harbour Boardwalk now started

Posted by | Greystones, Harbour | No Comments

Cllr. Derek Mitchell said he’s really pleased Greystones harbour boardwalk is currently being built. The developer is currently cutting the large steel piles to the same height and will then put a concrete deck on top during 2017. The walk on the inside of the marina will be closed when this is going on and the Cliff Walk will be through the housing area. Building the apartments will start when the Boardwalk is complete but it will remain closed until the apartments are finished because of the danger when the…

Posted by | Harbour | No Comments

Work has started on the permanent Marina building to replace the temporary office for the Harbourmaster and toilets/showers. This will have a restaurant on the first floor which should be a good addition to the area. This should be complete by the end of the year. Meanwhile the Marina Village is expected to have 50 houses occupied by the Summer and will start building the apartments during this Summer. These will have basement parking and the soil from this will start the construction of the 15 acre public park at…

Posted by | Greystones, Harbour | No Comments

The clubhouses for the Sea Scouts, Sailors, Divers, Anglers and Rowers are nearly complete and will be handed over to the clubs for final finishing in early December. I also notice that long hours, including weekend work, are being worked on the large public square. I anticipate that this will be open before next Summer. Agreement has recently been reached between Sisk, who have built the harbour, and Targeted Investment Opportunities which allows the buildings to be developed. Preliminary works have started on 60 houses, north of the existing Sailing…
