Residents near a vacant site on the Southern Cross Road in Bray have called for illegal dumping and other illegal activities to be stopped.
The site, which has been vacant for a number of years now, was supposed to be redeveloped by the Superquinn group, but that didn’t happen when they were taken over by Musgrave’s last year.
Residents of the neighbouring Deer Park, Whiteoaks, Heatherwood and Ard Na Greine estates have now called for the site to be developed for the purpose it was zoned for.
Sinn Fein election candidate Oliver O’ Brien has called on Bray Town Council to act to ensure that dumping and other illegal activities are ended.
Planning permission was given for a Supermarket and a six screen cinema in 2007 but the site remains undeveloped
O’Brien said: “The residents along the Southern Cross are long overdue the local infrastructure that’s so badly needed. Bray also badly needs a cinema and the residents of the nearby estate need the anti-social behaviour to stop.
