A new steering group has been established to work with consultants, councillors and stakeholders to progress the Bray Harbour improvement project.

As reported last month on, more than €7.1 million from the Urban Regeneration and Development Fund has been awarded to the Co Wicklow town for harbour rejuvenation works.

On the water, works will include dredging of the harbour allowing for the mooring of larger vessels, with a review of potential for extending the harbour wall to give better protection from waves in stormy conditions.

On land, there are plans for improving street lighting and paving, better provision for motorists and cyclists alike, improved sporting facilities and a new promenade boardwalk linking Bray's renowned promenade with the harbour. It's also proposed to relocate boat storage to the north of the harbour.

Wicklow County Council says it will keep all stakeholders up to date with any new information on its plans for the harbour.
