Greystones to get new town square and see parking axed on main street under radical new plan
Greystones is to get a new town square and a boardwalk while overhead cables and parking on Church Road will be axed as part of a radical new plan for the town.
Backers of the scheme are hoping to make better use of the open spaces and improve approaches to the town, while also integrating the expansion the town has seen in recent years.
The plan has been developed by Greystones 2020, with funding from the Leader funding programme, and is supported by Greystones Municipal District, Wicklow County Council and Greystones Tidy Towns committee.
According to Ryan Walker of planning consultants The Paul Hogart Company, which drew up the proposals, the scheme would look to expand the town’s history and enhance it amenities such as the cliff walk from Bray to Greystones.
The new public square would be called La Touche Square and would be located where car park at the Corner of Marine Road and La Touche Road is currently situated.
Also envisaged is a new boardwalk by the south beach while all parking, except for disabled drivers, would be removed from the town’s main street.
