Calls Made To Resolve Issues Facing Cliff Walk Between Bray And Greystones

Cllr Joe Behan (Bray Municipal District) and Cllr Stephen Stokes (Greystones Municipal District) are calling for the restoration of the Cliff Walk Management Committee.

The committee used to meet regularly in the days of Bray Town Council and Greystones Town Council.

It comprised of Councillors and Council Officials.

Both Cllr Behan and Cllr Stokes submitted motions to their respective Municipal Districts.

Cllr Joe Behan stated: "The Cliff Walk is an essential local amenity that draws in visitors from across Wicklow, and from around the world. People are rightly frustrated by the slow pace of re-opening. We need to address the outstanding issues as a matter of priority."

Greystones Municipal District has now approved the motion submitted by Councillor Stephen Stokes seeking the restoration of the Cliff Walk Management Committee.

Cllr Stokes added: "Myself and Cllr Behan are determined to seek action. The Cliff Walk also provides an important boost to tourism. Many local businesses struggled during Covid. One way to help them is to get more tourists visiting the area. A key part of this strategy must include the Cliff Walk. The current Cliff Walk Management Committee exists in name only."

Cllr Joe Behan and Cllr Stephen Stokes highlighted the need for forward planning.

Cllr Behan noted: "The pace of change has been slow, but eventually we expect the current issues to be resolved. We need to consider a strategic plan to harness the potential of the Cliff Walk. This can be tied in with the proposed East Coast Greenway. People will be able to walk from Bray to Wicklow Town, with stops in Greystones, Kilcoole or Newcastle. As such we need to breathe new life into the Cliff Walk Management Committee."
