CONSULTANTS acting on behalf of Wicklow County Council are carrying out several surveys and reports to determine the feasibility of plans for a greenway from Wicklow town to Greystones.

Cllr Tom Fortune raised the project having noticed €350,000 was listed in the Chief Executive’s report for the Wicklow town to Greystones cliff walk.

He asked: “I’m assuming that is for a feasibility study. What will happen with that and what are the next steps?”

Director of Services Michael Nicholson replied: “The funding is to further develop the plans and to carry out various reports and studies.

"From all my experience with the Blessington Greenway, this is a very detailed process and will take some time. The different studies and reports will determine the feasibility of the project and whether it will be a greenway or less than a greenway. It will go a long way toward determining what will happen.”
