Plans for long-awaited Coast Guard station at Greystones Harbour unveiled
The Irish Coast Guard rescue service is looking to build a new state-of-the-art station in county Wicklow.
Plans for the new buliding on the South Pier in Greystones Harbour were lodged by the Commissioners of Public Works in Ireland to Wicklow County Council.
The proposed building will consist of a single-storey boathouse and vehicle store with a combined floor area of 259 sqm and a roof height of 7.8m.
The plans would see a new vehicular access point and entrance signage, three flag poles and a radio aerial mast. The plans would see the creation of eight car parking spaces for use by members of the Irish Coast Guard Service.
Previous plans to build a new HQ for the local service were knocked back in 2016 following a long drawn out process.
The Irish Coast Guard has been looking to build a new station beside the quays for close to 15 years, moving away from its current site beside Greystones Garda Station.
