Petition To Develop Wicklow Greenway Secures 12,000 Signatures

A petition in support of an East Coast Greenway from Wicklow town to Greystones has received over 12,000 signatures.

The Greenway Group behind the initiative feel funding is urgently required for coastal erosion protection, with a cycle and walking Greenway built at the same time between the towns of Wicklow, Kilcoole, Newcastle and Greystones.
With the additional €10 million committed by the government in Budget 2019, to a total national fund of €63 million, the group are optimistic they can turn their Greenway dream into a reality.

The Wicklow County Development Plan which runs until 2022 has acknowledged that tourism and recreation makes a significant positive contribution to the local economy and a continuous sea-side greenway for around 25km would help to increase numbers visiting local attractions.
