Independent Cllr Tom Fortune has stated that following the local elections in May the completion of the community plan should be a major priority.
Fortune has confirmed that there are no longer any obstacles to the completion of the Community plan for Greystones harbour and that work could commence immediately.
He stated that he has seen the Market Change clause included in the contract and this did not constitute an obstacle to progress. “I am not a legal expert” said Fortune “but I could find nothing in the clause that justified the kind of delays that the people of Greystones have had to endure” Tom Fortune also stated that Council officials had confirmed to him that the finance of the project was underwritten by Sisk and that there was therefore more than adequate funds in place to complete the landscaping works.
Cllr Fortune said “With neither financial nor contractual obstacles in place to prevent the community plan proceeding, and following on from the May elections, proposals should immediately be brought to the County Council to complete the community plan for Greystones harbour and I sincerely hope that all elected council members from the Greystones Electorial Area will support this action and the people of Greystones will not have to endure another summer of discontent”.
