Not plain sailing: Greystones marina development hits snag over application omission
Plans for a major revamp of the marina in Greystones have hit a slight snag after the application lodged with Wicklow County Council was deemed to be incomplete.
Bernard Gallagher, on behalf of Greystones Harbour Marina lodged plans to update and amend plans to redevelop and modernise certain aspects of the marina building and sections of the marina itself.
Planning permission to upgrade the marina facilities was initially granted by Wicklow County Council back in 2016.
The approved plans allowed for the retention of marina building in its current standing and outline but with a new façade, public safety feature and upgraded entrances.
The marina is to install three new external staircases, a new external terrace to west facade, new clear glass guarding to terraces, white powder coated galvanised steel balustrades to the external stairs, new blue grey stone cladding panels to west façade of the marina building, new grey powder coated perforated aluminum clad feature wall to building’s south facade, and a new pedestrian access gate and safety fencing around the building at ground floor level.
However, the council has gone back to Bernard Gallagher and Greystones Harbour Marina explaining to them their new application has been deemed invalid.
The local authority told them they failed to declare that retention permission is also being sought alongside the amendments, which was not outlined in the planning application.
